Do you stand with President Trump? If so, I would like to ask you to support #TeamTrump candidates for Congress all over the nation. I am running on a pro-Trump platform in Idaho’s first congressional district, and so far I have created an enormous amount of buzz all over the state. But in order to win, I have to get my message out to hundreds of thousands of potential voters that are not familiar with my work, and that is going to take a lot of time, effort, energy and resources. It is humbling to be in a position where I am forced to rely on others, and I am learning how to reach out and ask for help. If you would like to contribute to the campaign, you can do so right here. Every single dollar makes a tremendous difference, and no donation is too small.
Fortunately, other #TeamTrump candidates are also starting to gain momentum across the country. Omar Navaro and Paul Nehlen are just two examples. If every Trump voter in the country donated at least one dollar to the campaign of a pro-Trump candidate for Congress today, all of us could have our campaigns completely funded by tomorrow. I recently learned that Americans spend 80 billion dollars a year on lottery tickets. It is so sad that people are literally flushing tens of billions of dollars down the toilet when they could be doing something constructive with it. Would you be willing to donate at least one dollar to my campaign? I personally see every single donation that comes into my campaign, and every single one encourages me so greatly.
Right now, many Democrats are having absolutely no problems raising money. If the Democrats win control of the Senate and the House in 2018, they are going to impeach President Trump, and their donors smell blood in the water.
And an effort may be made to impeach President Trump anyway if the composition of Congress stays about the same that it is right now. Many establishment Republicans would jump at the chance to stab Trump in the back, and that is why it is absolutely imperative that we get Trump a lot of friends in Congress in 2018.
Whoever wins the Republican primary here in Idaho’s first congressional district next May is going to win the general election the following November. There is no incumbent running for this seat, and I have a feeling that my primary opposition may come from a RINO in the state legislature that is rumored to be entering the race shortly. If this particular RINO ends up winning, he will be no friend of Trump.
But if I am elected, I will do whatever I can to stop the investigations into Trump and his family. It is abundantly clear that these investigations are simply witch hunts, and I will fight as hard as I can against the efforts of the Deep State to remove Trump from office.
The fate of the Trump presidency is going to hang in the balance in the mid-term elections, and many of these congressional elections are going to be decided by who raises the most money. If I can get my message out to every voter in this district, I will win, because I am much more conservative than anyone else in the race.
If you would like to help me win this race, there are several ways that you can do that…
Donate – Your donations are literally the fuel that moves our campaign forward. Since this is a completely wide open race with no incumbent, I have a very clear path to victory, but that will only happen if all of you stand with me. You have no idea how blessed I am by each contribution, and if you would like to join the effort you can do so right here.
Join The Email List – The email list on our official campaign website is how we will be keeping everyone informed about the campaign. So if you want to be part of what we are doing, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and subscribe to the email list.
Blast Campaign Materials Out To Your Email List – Perhaps you may not have much money to donate to the campaign right now, but when you forward articles such as this one out to your email contacts that multiplies the impact that we have. Some of you have hundreds of email contacts, and some of you have thousands, and it would be a tremendous help if you would share what we are trying to do with all of them.
Twitter Hashtags #MAGA And #TeamTrump – Would you be willing to post a message to Twitter each day with the hashtags #MAGA and #TeamTrump? Of course MAGA means “make America great again”, and the #TeamTrump hashtag is being used by pro-Trump campaigns all over the nation.
Sign Locations – If you live in the first congressional district here in Idaho, we are looking for locations on private property to put up signs. Ideally, we are looking for locations along roads that are heavily traveled. If you know of such a location that would be available for us, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and send me a message.
Facebook – I get a great deal of engagement on my personal Facebook profile, but we are also trying to increase engagement on our official Facebook campaign page. If you would be willing to visit the page regularly and like and share our material that would be an exceedingly great help to us.
Special Promotions – Thanks to those that supported our efforts on HelpMichaelWin.com, we have been able to print up much needed brochures and signs. We are hoping to have another special promotion ready to roll for my next interview on the Alex Jones Show on Tuesday.
Since the campaign launched on July 4th, God has been opening up door after door, and amazing things have been happening. The path to victory is very clear, but I also know that I could never do this alone. No matter how much time, effort and energy I put into this, this campaign will not succeed without the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors.
If you are wondering if I need your help, the answer is yes. You can donate to the campaign right here, and I would also like to ask you to prayerfully consider getting directly involved in the campaign in other ways as well.
My hope was that this campaign would bring together family, friends and fellow believers to work toward a common goal, and it has been such a thrill to see that actually happen. I want to thank everyone that has stepped forward to help us so far, and I can’t wait to see what happens next…
Have you ever asked yourself this question? Ever since I decided to run for Congress, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how divided our nation is. Donald Trump has become the most hated person in America, earlier this year a gunman tried to kill as many Republican members of Congress as possible at a baseball field in Virginia, and the mainstream media is fueling more hatred for conservatives on a daily basis. I think that I was more than a bit naive in thinking that I wouldn’t be caught up in all of this when I decided to run for public office. It has only been about a month, and so far I have been slandered repeatedly, my wife and daughter have been called all sorts of names, and even our faith has been attacked. I have never seen the left so energized in my entire lifetime, but meanwhile those of us that are trying to move the United States in a more conservative direction are facing an uphill battle when it comes to raising funds. If you believe that people like me should be running for Congress, I hope that you will support my campaign financially. Since there is no incumbent running in my district, the race is completely wide open, and if I raise enough money I will win because I have the strongest message by a very wide margin.
So far we have created a tremendous amount of buzz all over the district. On Friday I was down in Coeur d’Alene, and there are some wonderful conservative people down there that are super excited that I am running. Everywhere we go we are finding that voters are resonating with my extremely conservative message, and if I have enough resources to get this message to every voter in the district, there is no way that I should lose this race.
But of course not everybody is pleased by all the buzz I am creating.
If I win this election, I am very rapidly going to become one of the most hated members of Congress in the entire country. And the reason why I will be hated so much is because I will be what the left fears the most – a conservative with a backbone.
In the end, this is not a battle about tax rates, the size of government or how to fix our economy. All of those are very important issues, but at the core this is a fight for the soul of our nation.
Over the past 100 years, we have seen big government leftists take power all over the world. The “progressives” of today are driven by the same philosophies and are using the same tactics as the communists of the USSR, the brownshirts of Nazi Germany (Nazi: National Socialists), and the Maoists of Red China. At this moment the “progressives” dominate most of the political systems on the entire planet, and they would love to fully take control of the United States as well, but there are enough of us that still love liberty and freedom to stand in their way.
In leftist societies, big government rapidly becomes the centerpiece of society. And that is one reason why so many of these big government systems are so godless, because government essentially takes the place of God over time.
Two diametrically opposed worldviews are clashing in our country right now, and eventually one of those worldviews will be vanquished by the other.
For those of us that still believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the “progressives” of today are an existential threat. If the left gets enough power, they will criminalize what we believe by making it “hate speech”. Sadly, this is already starting to happen in local communities all over America. And online, a number of social media companies have been making a renewed effort to censor conservative voices in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory last November. They see how powerful the alternative media has become and they want to shut us up.
Unfortunately, I am seeing a lot of apathy among conservatives right now. They seem to think that the battle is over because we got Donald Trump into the White House. What they don’t understand is that the battle is just beginning. We need people to stand up and fight like never before, and this is something that I talk about in my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”. If America does not change direction immediately, there isn’t going to be an America.
And actually that is going to be one of my major themes when I speak at Pastor Benjamin Faircloth’s church in Lavonia, Georgia later in August. The “What’s Next Prophecy Conference” will be held on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th, and it will also be available online for those that are not able to make it in person…
If you live anywhere near Lavonia, I hope that you will come and join us. This is going to be one of my very few opportunities to travel out of state in the near future, because I am going to be spending almost all of my time traveling all over Idaho for my campaign.
You know, I have actually been criticized by certain Christians for moving into the world of politics. They seem to believe that “ministry” can only be done in a “church”, and that therefore trying to take my message to a national platform in Washington D.C. must be a “mistake”.
But all I can tell them is that I must do what I feel like God is leading me to do. And thankfully so many others out there have rallied to my cause and have donated to my campaign. So far, the leading fundraiser in this race is an attorney from the Boise area named Dave Leroy, and in just four weeks I have already had far more donors than he did during the entire second quarter. But because he is getting those big $1000 and $2000 checks and I am raising money $10 and $20 at a time, I have a gap to make up.
If you believe in what I am trying to do, I would like to ask for your help. I am the most conservative candidate in this race by a very wide margin, and it is absolutely imperative that we fill this open seat with a very strong conservative that will relentlessly fight for liberty and freedom.
Most people don’t understand that you do not just vote at the ballot box. The truth is that you also vote when you decide who to support financially. So many Americans wouldn’t think twice about spending 20 bucks at a fast food place, but they will never even consider contributing that much toward the fight for the future of our nation.
Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn. My family is putting so much on the line in this race, but there is no possible way that we will be successful without your help. If you would like to contribute to this fight, you can do so right here or by using a contribution form on my website. Thank you so much for standing with me, and if we all work together I believe that we will be able to accomplish truly great things…
Disneyland is known as a place “where dreams come true” and where every story always has a happy ending. But there is going to be no happy ending for the U.S. economy. Wishful thinking has resulted in one of the greatest stock market rallies in history in recent months, but like all childhood fantasies, it won’t last. The real economy continues to deteriorate, and we can see this even right outside of the gates of Disneyland. Every night growing numbers of homeless people sleep on the pavement just steps away from “the happiest place on Earth”. It can be fun to “play make believe” for a while, but eventually reality always catches up with us.
Without a doubt, the stock market has been on a tremendous run. Since Donald Trump’s stunning election victory in November, the market has been setting record high after record high, and it is now up a total of 17 percent…
The Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its 23rd all time high of 2017 yesterday closing at 21,532. There have been a total of 120 days where the markets have closed since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20th. The ‘DOW’ has closed at all time highs 23 of those days for nearly 20% or one-fifth of the days the market has been open. The market is up 9% since the inauguration.
Since the election on November 8th the DOW has closed at record highs an amazing 40 times! Nearly one-fourth or 24% of the 168 days the markets have closed have been record highs since the November 8th election. The market is up 17% since the election!
If this surge was supported by hard economic data, that would be something to greatly celebrate, but that has not been the case at all.
Instead, stock prices have become completely disconnected from economic reality, and now we are facing one of the greatest stock bubbles of all time. As Graham Summers has pointed out, stocks are now trading at price to sales ratios that we haven’t seen since the very height of the dotcom bubble…
Earnings, cash flow, and book value are all financial data points that can be massaged via a variety of gimmicks. As a result of this, valuing stocks based on Price to Earnings, Price to Cash Flow, and Price to Book Value can often lead to inaccurate valuations.
Sales on the other hand are all but impossible to gimmick. Either money came in the door, or it didn’t And, if a company is caught faking its sales numbers, someone is going to jail.
So the fact that stocks are now trading at a P/S ratio that matches the Tech Bubble (the single largest stock bubble in history) tells us that we’re truly trading at astronomical levels: levels associated with staggering levels of excess.
There is no possible way that this is sustainable, and just like before the 2008 crisis a whole host of experts are warning that disaster is imminent. One of them is John Mauldin…
Looking with fresh eyes at the economic numbers and central bankers’ statements convinced me that we will soon be in deep trouble. I now feel that it’s highly likely we will face a major financial crisis, if not later this year, then by the end of 2018 at the latest. Just a few months ago, I thought we could avoid a crisis and muddle through. Now I think we’re past that point. The key decision-makers have (1) done nothing, (2) done the wrong thing, or (3) done the right thing too late.
Having realized this, I’m adjusting my research efforts. I believe a major crisis is coming. The questions now are, how severe will it be, and how will we get through it?
And even though the stock market has been surging deeper and deeper into bubble territory in recent months, the middle class has continued to shrink and poverty has continued to grow all over the country. In fact, because so many homeless people have been sleeping at bus shelters across from Disneyland lately authorities decided to completely remove the benches that they had been sleeping on…
The vanishing benches were Anaheim’s response to complaints about the homeless population around Disneyland. Public work crews removed 20 benches from bus shelters after callers alerted City Hall to reports of vagrants drinking, defecating or smoking pot in the neighborhood near the amusement park’s entrance, officials said.
The situation is part of a larger struggle by Orange County to deal with a rising homeless population. A survey last year placed the number of those without shelter at 15,300 people, compared with 12,700 two years earlier.
But simply removing benches will not make the problem go away.
Homelessness has been growing so rapidly in Los Angeles that the the L.A. City Council actually asked Governor Jerry Brown to formally declare a state of emergency.
And in New York City, street homelessness is up 39 percent over the past year.
This is where the real economy is heading, but a rising stock market makes for much happier headlines.
Many major cities around the nation are passing laws to essentially make it illegal to be homeless. Forcing homeless people to go somewhere else may mask the problem for a while, but it certainly doesn’t do anything to solve it. In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I talk about how real love is not just about loving those that are just like us. Rather, real love is about caring for people no matter what they look like and no matter what they are going through.
Unfortunately, the economic suffering that we are seeing right now is just the beginning.
Just like in 2008, the major financial crisis that is coming is going to greatly accelerate our economic problems. And just like last time, millions of people are going to lose their jobs, and millions of people are going to lose their homes.
Homelessness is already worse in many parts of the nation that it was during the depths of the last recession, and what we are going to see during the next economic downturn is going to be absolutely unprecedented.
So don’t look down on those that need a helping hand, because in the not too distant future you may find yourself needing some help.
Michael Snyder is a Republican 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 Amazon.com.
Have you ever reached a point in life where things have gotten so bad that it seems impossible to ever turn things around? In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I begin by sharing such a point in my own life about 20 years ago. If someone would have told me at the time what my life would be like today, I would have laughed at them. But God took the broken pieces of my life and turned them into a beautiful thing, and He can do the exact same thing for anyone else.
This is the most personal book that I have written, and it is quite a departure from my normal work. If you follow my work on a regular basis, than you know that I like to write about politics, economics and the hard issues of our day in a way that the average person on the street can understand. And I heavily document the points I make with facts, figures and statistics, and there are still lots of facts, figures and statistics in my new book.
But in this new book I hope to inspire people to reach for something more. Instead of focusing so much on the problems, this book is absolutely packed with solutions. In many ways, it is patterned after the Book of Proverbs. There are literally hundreds of secrets that I have learned over the course of my 47 years embedded throughout the chapters of this book, and I wish that someone had shared all of these secrets with me when I was a young man.
So it is not a book that you will want to speed through. There are literally life changing truths on every single page, and you may find yourself going back over some portions of the book time and time again.
This book is not written on a theoretical level. I know that the secrets contained in this book work, because they have absolutely revolutionized my life. But of course I didn’t invent these secrets. Ultimately, every bit of wisdom that any of us have been given comes from the One that created us all. Without God nothing is possible, but with Him all things are possible.
As I was writing this book, I often struggled to find the words to describe what it was about. Sometimes my wife would even look at me with a puzzled look when I tried to explain it to her. It is not a “self-help book” that will help you to become wealthy, famous or successful. Neither is it an “inspirational” book that will give you warm fuzzies. Rather, it is a book that is absolutely packed with life lessons that nobody else seems to want to talk about. The following is the description of the book that is on Amazon…
Deep inside all of us is a yearning to live a life that is filled with meaning and purpose. We all want to feel good about our lives, and we all want something to look forward to when we get out of bed in the morning. As little children we were filled with hopes and dreams for the future, but for so many of us those dreams have long since faded. Instead, many of us drag ourselves through life feeling down, depressed and defeated. In this book Michael Snyder is going to share with you what he has learned about living an overflowing life. We were designed to love, to laugh, to discover, to create and to live lives that are filled with passion. Unfortunately, so many of us have bought into lies that have enabled the enemy to steal all of that from us. No matter how bad things may seem right now, God can take the broken pieces of your life and turn them into a beautiful thing. But you have got to be willing to break your old patterns and start doing things that will produce good fruit in your life. This book will help you to do that.
In order for our lives to function the way that they should, God must be at the center of our lives. And He has given us instructions for how we are to live, but most of the population is completely disregarding those instructions.
Following His instructions will lead to life, love, blessing and peace, but so many people have been living another way for so long that they don’t even know that such a life is possible.
This book is going to be extremely controversial, and it is going to deeply challenge you as you read it. But for those that embrace what I am sharing, it will be a completely life-changing experience. In fact, I believe that this book is going to change more lives than anything else I have ever written.
After you have read the book, I hope that many of you will write to me and share how it has affected you. Writing this book was an emotional experience for me, and I believe that it will help a lot of you wrestle with things that you have been dealing with for a very long time.
Near the end of the book I also share about why I am running for Congress, although in the future I hope to do an entire book about why we desperately need to try to get this nation to change course.
But this book is primarily about matters of the heart. Most people I encounter in life are not living victorious lives. Instead, most people out there seem to have had the life completely sucked out of them by all of the pain, heartache and trials that they have been through.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
You can live an overflowing life, and the greatest chapters of your life can still be ahead of you.
But if you keep falling into the same patterns that you have been following all along, you will keep getting the exact same results.
God has a better plan for you, and it starts with doing things His way.
So I very, very much encourage you to get my new book and to read it all the way through. If you embrace what I share in this book and apply these principles to your own life, they will turn your life completely upside down.
Now that the book is finally out, you can find it in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com. It will also be available from many other online retailers, but if you want to get it right away Amazon will be the place to go.
No matter what you have been through, God still has a plan for you. And if He can turn my life completely around and use me to touch millions of people all over the world, then He can do it for anyone.
Thank you again for being such faithful readers. Without all of you, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do, and I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this new book…
Would Kid Rock make a good U.S. senator? When asked if a website promoting his potential run was real, he responded by tweeting that the answer is “an absolute YES”. Of course no official announcement has been made yet, but Kid Rock says one may be coming very soon. Many Republicans have been urging him to run against incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow, and it looks like this may actually happen. Thanks to Donald Trump’s election victory last November, a lot of celebrities are starting to realize that they might be able to be successful in politics too. Even now, there are rumors that Mark Zuckerberg, The Rock, Katy Perry and Oprah Winfrey may all be considering running for president in 2020, and it would be a shock if we didn’t see at least a few “unconventional candidates” shoot for the White House next time around.
Considering the clown show that the Senate has already become, it is hard to imagine things getting much worse. If you want to see the website that has been set up for Kid Rock’s campaign, you can find it right here. Apparently his primary slogan is “Are You Scared?”
Some may dismiss this as a publicity stunt, but apparently Kid Rock is quite serious about running…
Famed rocker and admitted Republican Robert Ritchie — aka “Kid Rock” — tweeted Wednesday that he has been asked repeatedly about whether he is going to run for office, specifically for the U.S. Senate. His response? “Absolute YES.”
Ritchie has been vocally supportive of Republican politicians in the past, including President Donald Trump, whom he endorsed during the 2016 presidential elections. Ritchie recently made headlines when he visited the White House with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and fellow rocker Ted Nugent. The photos that came out of the visit prompted nasty comments from many on the left.
When you go to his website, you will notice that nothing is said about the issues. This is so typical of what you will find on many campaign websites these days, and that is why I have tried to be completely different. Instead of playing “hide and seek” with the issues, candidates should come out and tell people exactly where they stand so that voters can make informed decisions.
So where does Kid Rock stand? Well, apparently he is not really that conservative. The following comes from Fox News…
Rock, an outspoken conservative, endorsed Mitt Romney for president during his 2012 campaign. He told The Guardian in 2015 that he’s a Republican on certain issues, but leans toward the middle on others.
“I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do. As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it,” Rock said.
Obviously this is not the kind of candidate that a lot of us are going to be able to get behind.
In fact, I have unequivocally stated that I will never support any Republican candidate that does not pledge to vote against any bill that contains even a single penny of funding for Planned Parenthood.
But if good people don’t run, we are going to end up with whatever we get.
If you think that Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, Al Franken, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham and the rest of our Congress critters are doing a great job, then no action is required.
However, if you are sick and tired of the mess in Washington, I encourage you to join us in trying to do something about it.
I am trying to do my part by running for Congress here in Idaho. I am just an ordinary person that has never run for public office before, but at least I am putting myself out there.
And maybe you should consider running for something in 2018 too.
One of the big things that I am trying to do is to inspire good people to run for public office all over the nation. Because getting one person elected is only going to have a very small impact, but if hundreds of good people start winning elections all over the country that is really going to start changing things.
There is never any guarantee of success. When our founders decided to rebel against the mighty British Empire, the rest of the world thought that they were crazy. But instead of listening to the doubts, they put everything they had on the line, and as a result the United States of America exists today.
And whoever thought that Donald Trump would become the president of the United States? When he first announced his candidacy, the mainstream media mocked him relentlessly. They treated him like a huge joke, and hardly anyone believed that he actually had a prayer of winning the Republican nomination.
Jeb Bush had 100 million dollars and nearly the entire Republican establishment on his side, and Trump smashed him because Trump simply had a much better message.
So would you consider getting involved? If you feel like you absolutely cannot run for something, then at least get involved in the campaign of someone that you do feel like you can back.
If we do nothing, there is no hope for America. Because if this nation stays on the path that it is currently on, it will crash and burn.
What we need is a second American revolution. Instead of a revolution with guns and bullets, what we need is a revolution of ideas, values and principles.
So many of us (including myself) have bitterly complained that we never have anyone good to vote for. And we can continue to do so, or we can take matters into our own hands and start running for these offices ourselves.
A lot of people believe that America is too far gone and that we shouldn’t even try to fight the death of our country.
But I believe that it is never too late to shine a light in the darkness, and I plan to keep proclaiming the truth for as long as I possibly can.
And I hope that as many of you as possible will join with me, because otherwise the clowns will just keep on winning over and over again.
Nearly six years ago, my wife Meranda and I moved up to north Idaho in search of a better life. We believed that it would be a place where we could work hard, raise a family and pursue our dreams without constantly having to deal with the long arm of big government interfering in our lives. But of course big government is everywhere, and we have come to realize that if we do not stand up and fight for our way of life, someday it will be gone completely.
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.
So today, on the 241st anniversary of our Independence Day, I am publicly announcing that I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district.
I have been called an “anti-politician” because I am not just another career politician looking for a job. If I am sent to Washington, I plan to turn the tables over, dismantle the big government institutions that the liberal elite have constructed, and fight to restore our Republic.
If you are not familiar with me or my work, the following are 16 ways that I will be different from a typical Republican politician…
#1 Most Republican politicians tend to protect one another, but one of my campaign slogans is “Every RINO Needs To Go“. We will never turn this nation in a positive direction until we clean up our own party first. At this point Congress has an approval rating of about 16 percent, and it is time to flush the toilet.
#2 For decades Republicans have been using the Pro-Life label to get our votes and then betraying our values once they get into office. If I am elected, I will use the full power of my office to go to war with Planned Parenthood. I will NEVER vote for any bill, no matter what it says, if it includes even a single penny of funding for Planned Parenthood, and I will actively work to defeat any Republican politician that will not make the same pledge. But I won’t be satisfied once Planned Parenthood is defunded. My goal is to completely destroy Planned Parenthood as an organization, and I will greatly rejoice when the final Planned Parenthood clinic in America is finally shut down for good.
#3 I believe that every American citizen has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and I believe that government agencies that have been used to relentlessly harass gun owners such as the BATFE need to be shut down permanently.
#4 Many Republican politicians want to lower tax rates, but like Ron Paul I want to abolish the income tax and the IRS completely. We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history.
#5 Another thing that I have in common with Ron Paul is that I want to abolish the Federal Reserve. Since the Fed was created in 1913, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger. The Fed is at the very heart of our debt-based financial system, and abolishing it is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.
#6 I want to get the federal government off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners and our ranchers. And so that is just one of many reasons why I want to abolish the EPA.
#7 I believe that we need to get the federal government out of the education business. I would abolish Common Core and the U.S. Department of Education, and I would return full control over education to the state level.
#8 I believe that it is time to “shut down Big Brother”. The NSA has been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.
#9 In his budget, President Trump proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. I say that is a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies should remain open.
#10 I am for a 100% repeal of Obamacare, and I believe that it is a disgrace to our party that half a year has passed and one of the worst pieces of legislation in the history of our nation still has not been repealed.
#11 I want to help Donald Trump build a wall on the southern border, and I believe that the Republicans in Congress that are trying to block the wall need to be held accountable by the voters.
#12 If I am elected, I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees. The federal government should not have the right to force us to take Islamic refugees against our will, and the sexual assault of that precious little five-year-old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho by three Islamic refugees is just the tip of the iceberg of what will happen if changes are not made.
#13 I don’t care if it’s not politically correct – I will never be afraid to use the phrase “Islamic terrorism”. The number of terror attacks keeps rising with each passing year, and those that don’t realize that we are in a war are in a complete state of denial.
#14 When Barack Obama entered the White House the national debt was just 10.6 trillion dollars. When we gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives, the national debt was just over 14 trillion dollars. Now it is close to 20 trillion dollars and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day. In a just society, those responsible for getting us into so much debt would be put in prison.
#15 Today, the federal government controls more than 60 percent of all Idaho land. If I am elected, this is what my message to the feds will be: “Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho”.
#16 Unlike most politicians, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Christian. This nation was founded by Bible-believing Christians, and the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution were birthed out of the values and principles found in the Word of God. If we truly want to make America great again, we need to return to those values and principles.
Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn.
This is our time.
This is our second American revolution.
This revolution won’t be fought with guns and bullets. Rather, it will be a revolution of ideas, values and principles.
We can take our country back, but we have to be willing to work together. I am asking you to join us, because we are in a battle for the soul of our nation, and it is a battle that we cannot afford to lose.
If you would like to learn more about what I am trying to do, you can visit my official campaign website or my official campaign Facebook page. Ultimately this is not about winning one election or getting a certain candidate into office. Rather, this is about a movement to save our country. My hope is that what I am doing will inspire many others to do the same thing.
2018 may be the most critical mid-term elections in our history, and we need good men and women to run for office all over the nation. Individually, we can only accomplish so much, but together we can make a world of difference.
It has become exceedingly clear that the Democratic Party is in deep trouble. Close to 55 million dollars was spent on the race in Georgia’s sixth congressional district, and that shattered all kinds of records. Democrat Jon Ossoff was able to raise and spend six times as much money as Karen Handel and yet he still lost. This was supposed to be the race that would show the American people that the Democrats could take back control of Congress in 2018, and so for the Democrats this was a bitter failure. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee actually injected almost 5 million dollars into the race themselves, and Planned Parenthood threw in another $700,000. But after all of the time, effort and energy that was expended, Handel still won fairly comfortably.
The Democrats are trying to spin this result as some sort of “moral victory”, but as Dan Balz of the Washington Post has pointed out, there are “no moral victories in politics”…
There are no moral victories in politics. Republicans won on Tuesday in the most important special election this year. Democrats lost, as they have done in the other special elections in GOP-held seats this year.
For the national Democratic Party, the debate continues about developing a message that goes beyond attacking Trump, or assuming dissatisfaction with the president will be enough.
It has been a very long time since there has been so much national attention on a single House race. A number of high profile Hollywood celebrities became personally involved in Ossoff’s campaign, and they were absolutely devastated when he lost…
Celebrities who donated time and money to Ossoff’s campaign, including actresses Alyssa Milano and Rosie O’Donnell, used their social media accounts to react to the Democrat’s loss shortly after the election results were confirmed late Tuesday night.
Milano, who personally drove voters to the polls in April’s preliminary election and was actively campaigning for the Democrat for most of Election Day, tweeted simply: “Grouphug” and “Get in.”
Meanwhile, electronic music producer Moby and vocal Trump critic O’Donnell appeared to be frustrated by the results, with Moby questioning how Democratic “still can’t win” even with “buffoon” Donald Trump in the White House. O’Donnell tweeted: “DONALD TRUMP IS THE DARKNESS ITSELF.”
Where does the Democratic Party go from here?
Their anti-Trump message is not working, and their usual divide and conquer tactics are not working either.
At this point either the Democratic Party is going to have to reinvent itself, or they could be facing a long, painful string of election defeats for the foreseeable future. To say that things have not been going well for the Democrats lately would be a major understatement. I really like what Rush Limbaugh had to say about this on his radio show…
“You have no idea the degree to which the media and the Democratic Party are destroyed today. I’m talking about how they feel … which is complete and utter defeat, frustration and devastation,” he said on Wednesday, hours after Republican Karen Handel was a multiple percentage point winner over defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff.
“The dirty little secret is the media and the Democratic Party is turning off average Americans. They are not persuading, they are not convincing people Trump is a reprobate,” he continued. “They do not know how to beat Donald Trump. There are depressed and despondent.”
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why Jon Ossoff lost.
All of the anger and violence that we have seen lately has greatly tainted the Democratic Party.
The Democrats have become the party of Kathy Griffin.
The Democrats have become the party of Antifa and mock Trump assassinations.
And the Democrats have become the party of James Hodgkinson.
U.S. Representative Tim Ryan was right on the ball when he admitted that his party’s brand has now become “toxic” in much of the nation…
Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio, who tried to unseat Ms. Pelosi as House minority leader late last fall, said she remained a political millstone for Democrats. But Mr. Ryan said the Democratic brand had also become “toxic” in much of the country because voters saw Democrats as “not being able to connect with the issues they care about.”
“Our brand is worse than Trump,” he said.
As I have discussed repeatedly, the left doesn’t have any positive vision for the future to offer the American people. They cannot win in the marketplace of ideas, and so they use anger, frustration, intimidation and violence as weapons. For quite a while the Democrats successfully used “the blame game” and divide and conquer tactics to win elections, but now the American people are seeing through the charade.
The more angry and violent the left becomes, the more the American people are going to turn against them. The following comes from Daniel Greenfield…
But Trump Derangement Syndrome is a symptom of a problem with the left that existed before he was born. The left is an angry movement. It is animated by an outraged self-righteousness whose moral superiority doubles as dehumanization. And its machinery of culture glamorizes its anger. The media dresses up the seething rage so that the left never has to look at its inner Hodgkinson in the mirror.
The left is as angry as ever. Campus riots and assassinations of Republican politicians are nothing new. What is changing is that its opponents are beginning to match its anger. The left still clings to the same anger it had when it was a theoretical movement with plans, but little impact on the country. The outrage at the left is no longer ideological. There are millions of people whose health care was destroyed by ObamaCare, whose First Amendment rights were taken away, whose land was seized, whose children were turned against them and whose livelihoods were destroyed.
Of course it is quite true that the Republican Party needs to be cleaned up as well. Many establishment Republicans use labels such as “conservative” and “Pro-Life” to win elections, but then they end up government like Democrats. And so many members of Congress in both parties spend far more time and energy raising money for their next elections than they do serving the American people.
There is a reason why Congress only has a 17.6 percent approval rating at the moment. Both major parties should take that as a sign that they need to clean up their acts, because the American people are sick and tired of the status quo.
What in the world did the left think would happen? When Kathy Griffin posed for a photo with “Trump’s bloody head”, that sent a message. And the twisted version of “Julius Caesar” that is currently being put on by a New York theater group in which a character meant to closely resemble Donald Trump is brutally assassinated sends a message. At any time of the day, you can find leftist radicals openly discussing violence against Trump and Republicans on Facebook and Twitter, and groups like Antifa have been employing extremely violent tactics ever since the Inauguration. So it is not much of a surprise that a huge Bernie Sanders supporter decided that it would be a good idea to try to mow down Republican members of Congress as they were practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game on Wednesday. 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson was simply the product of a political movement that is absolutely seething with hate.
This is not a game. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot in the hip, and four others were injured. You can see some footage of Scalise being taken to an ambulance here. When Hodgkinson arrived at the practice field, he specifically asked which party was using the practice field at that moment…
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recounted an “odd” encounter he had as he was leaving the field just minutes before the shooting: “There was a guy that walked up to us that was asking whether it was Republicans or Democrats out there, and it was just a little odd,” DeSantis told Fox News.
According to news reports, Hodgkinson fired dozens of shots. This wasn’t a case of targeting a particular individual. Rather, it was obvious that he intended to kill as many Republicans as he possibly could.
But instead of showing remorse, many on the radical left were actually celebrating the shootings on Twitter. And there were even some that were disappointed that it wasn’t Trump that had been shot.
I hate to say this, but it is likely that this is just the beginning of the violence by the radical left.
So what would make a 66-year-old man suddenly snap like this?
His Facebook page has now been taken down, but when it was up Hodgkinson had an enormous photo of Bernie Sanders as his banner image. And it turns out that he was a huge fan of Rachel Maddow…
So, where did Hodgkinson draw inspiration for his “progressive” political beliefs? Well, according to a letter to the editor published in the “Belleville News-Democrat” in July 2012, Hodgkinson’s favorite TV show was MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show.”
What you consistently feed your mind determines what you eventually become, and this case is a perfect example. On Facebook, Hodgkinson regularly shared his hate-filled beliefs…
In a March 22 Facebook post, Hodgkinson, who turned his ire against Trump, who he described as a “traitor.”
“Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy,” he said. “It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
In a post earlier this week, the suspect highlighted a campaign calling for the president’s impeachment.
“Trump is Guilty & Should Go to Prison for Treason,” Hodgkinson wrote.
And just check out some of the Facebook groups that Hodgkinson belonged to…
▪ “The Road to Hell is Paved with Republicans”
▪ “Donald Trump is not my President”
▪ “President Bernie Sanders”
▪ “Illinois Berners United to Resist Trump”
▪ “Boycott the Republican Party”
▪ “Expose Republican Fraud”
▪ “Terminate the Republican Party”
The hate-filled ideology of the left is intellectually and morally bankrupt, and the only thing all of this violence is going to do is to drive the American people away from their cause.
I must say that I agreed with U.S. Representative Steve King 100 percent when he told reporters that “violence is appearing in the streets”, and that it is “coming from the left”…
“America has been divided,” said Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who, in suit and tie, stopped by the crime scene to pray and was viscerally angry about his colleagues being attacked. “And the center of America is disappearing, and the violence is appearing in the streets, and it’s coming from the left.”
And of course there has been a pattern of violence against Republican lawmakers in recent months. The following compilation comes from Natural News…
Last month, as noted by The Daily Caller, GOP Rep. Tom Garrett’s town halls were replete with heavy security and police presence after he and his family were repeatedly threatened with death. “This is how we’re going to kill your wife,” some disgusting coward wrote, Garrett told Politico.
Also last month, Tennessee police arrested and charged a 35-year-old woman, Wendi Wright, with felonious reckless endangerment after she allegedly attempted to run GOP Rep. David Kustoff off the road following a raucous town hall event featuring the Republican health care legislation.
That same day, North Dakota police escorted a man out of a town hall meeting hosted by Rep. Kevin Cramer after a man became physical with him, shoving a fistful of dollars into Cramer’s shirt collar.
I almost didn’t want my wife to see what happened in Alexandria this morning, because I am very, very strongly considering running for Congress here in Idaho.
I couldn’t help but think that it could have been me out on that baseball field.
It would be naive to think that more Republican lawmakers won’t be targeted. Just like radical Islam, the radical left in this country will never be satisfied until they completely eradicate our way of life. The radical left uses tools such as threats, violence and intimidation because they simply do not have the ammunition to win in the marketplace of ideas. And so anyone that tries to stand up to them will become a potential target.
But if we just sit back and do nothing, they will win by default.
In the end, Hodgkinson and others like him will fail. Because every time they strike us, all they are doing is waking up a sleeping giant called “the American people”. We will not bend, we will not bow, and we will not break, and no matter how violent they become our resolve will not waver.
Every since the very beginning of our nation Americans have had to stand up against tyranny, and we aren’t going to back down now.
Why do liberals seem to hate just about everything that is good and true and right about this country? Earlier today I was writing an article about Kathy Griffin and the hate-filled ideology that she represents, and it got me thinking about a lot of things. I truly believe that her now infamous photograph will turn out to be a defining moment in American politics. It has become exceedingly clear that Kathy Griffin and those like her have nothing to offer but anger, hate and violence, and that is not a message that most Americans are going to embrace. So if true conservatives can start communicating a message of love, peace, prosperity, liberty and freedom that is based on the principles and values that this nation was founded upon, there is no way that the left is going to be able to compete with that.
If we want to make America great again, we need to embrace the things that made us great in the first place. Unfortunately, the left tends to hate most of those things. In fact, many leftists will actually tell you that America was never great. These “progressives” want our nation to be fundamentally “transformed” into an entirely different place than our forefathers intended, and they plan to use big government as the tool to conduct that “transformation”.
If they ultimately win, the country that you and I love so much today will be gone forever. I want you to read the list below and imagine what the United States would be like if all of these things were eradicated. The following is a list of 100 things that liberals hate about America…
