The truth about Alicia Colvin and her sham Republican campaign

Alicia Colvin was the only woman GOP candidate for the Senate in Utah. But she shouldn’t have been – according to her own volition. And there’s evidence that she ran a fake campaign. Alicia Colvin enjoyed a Sunday front-page spotlight in The Salt Lake Tribune when she was reported to have been the only woman Republican candidate in Utah for the U.S. Senate. The problem is that, according to Colvin’s own remarks and apparent beliefs, this never should have been the case. A mere 10 months before the filing deadline,…

Vegas and history

“Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.” – Hillary Clinton Tweet, Oct.2nd I despise any individual that abuses our Second Amendment rights. It goes beyond the pain and devastation that affects individual lives to the violation of precious rights and liberties under whose umbrella such carnage is possible. The history of modern firearms is indeed violent, but a great majority of that violence (at least in America) has been used…

Trump leverages DACA

The Trump administration has officially announced its plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program – which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children – with a six-month delay for current recipients. As a career Real Estate Developer President Trump understands leverage. In one shrewd move, he has challenged Congress into crafting serious comprehensive immigration reform. While the left loses their collective minds claiming Trump is insensitive, racist, lacks compassion or whatever the talking point du jour requires,…

Alligator Alley, D.C

“Republicans Senators are working hard to get their failed ObamaCare replacement approved. I will be at my desk, pen in hand!” “I am sitting in the Oval Office with a pen in hand, waiting for our senators to give it to me.” – President Trump, last two weeks of July 2017. When Donald Trump was elected, one of his major campaign promises was to “drain the swamp”. This is proving to be problematic as almost everyone he seems to put in a position to assist with his agenda turns out…

In interview with Putin, Megyn makes a mockery

“Presidents come and go and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change. That’s why, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t care who is the head of the United States. We know, more or less, what is going to happen. And so in this regard, even if we wanted to, it would not make sense for us to interfere.” Vladimir Putin interview with Megyn Kelly, June 5, 2016 I remember watching Megyn Kelly’s first show on Fox News. She was fresh, feisty…

Seeds of discontent

“Anything that Hillary accuses Trump of doing, you know that is what she is doing. That is how the left works, how she works. It is right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook. Everything they are doing they accuse you.” – Former Clinton Insider Larry Nichols in an interview with Alex Jones, September 2016. Barely a month into the Trump administration and anything to do with Trump’s agenda is under attack from all sides. A combination of RINO Republicans, virtually all Democrats, and the mainstream media combine and conspire to…

The enemy within

“Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States” – Goal #15 of the Communist Party to overthrow America, “The Naked Communist”, Cleon Skousen, Published in 1958, read into the Congressional record in January, 1963. “The western world has been thoroughly saturated with Christianity for 2000 years…any country grounded in Judeo-Christian values cannot be overthrown until those roots are cut. But to cut the roots, to change the culture, a Long March through the institutions is necessary. Only then will power fall into our laps like ripened…

Informed Consent: Why I joined the Republican Party after 8 years of fighting with it

I’ve been an independent voter since I registered to vote and I’ve been proud of it. It has allowed me to sidestep the silly, stupid, damaging tribal identities that (I think) blind people to the efficacy or desirability of particular policies – forcing them instead to adopt whichever focus-grouped hashtag rallying cry their leaders slapped on a tweet. Earlier this year, I registered as a Republican to caucus against Trump and then immediately unregistered before Reince Priebus could sneak into my bedroom and try to sell my Ronald Reagan boxers…

A nation divided

“I would feel deeply frustrated [about welcoming Trump to the White House] not because of anything he’s said about me, but because I would fear for the future of our country.” – President Barack Obama “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables‘. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” – Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton The 2016 Election is…

Why Trump will destroy the GOP (and probably take the Democrats with him)

Donald Trump did what I didn’t think was possible: he got elected President of the United States. Nothing else has changed. He is still a vulgar ideologically-unmoored proto-fascist con man who has enabled and emboldened the worst elements of the alt-Reich. No amount of surrounding him with GOP handlers is going to keep Trump from, well, being Trump. In fact, this is likely to transform the GOP from a party that at least pays lip service to the idea of limited government into a populist party of anti-liberal grievance politics.…
