Jim Jordan understands the people arent happy with Congress

The phrases “elected official” and “self-aware” are rarely used in the same sentence outside of satire. American politicians in recent years have been grossly unaware of their place in the hearts and minds of the American people. They either don’t recognize how they’re viewed or they deflect the knowledge in a way that won’t damage their egos.

Representative Jim Jordan seems to have a better understanding than most.

“I believe we have given the American people reason to question our commitment to reform.”

If anything, this is an understatement. Obamacare still stands relatively unscathed nearly two years after its death warrant was signed by the American people during the 2016 elections. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The quote was made while Jordan was announcing his intentions to run for Speaker of the House.

How Jim Jordan could save Congress for the GOP

http://noqreport.com/2018/07/26/jim-jordan-save-congress-gop/The conservative has been a thorn in the side of establishment Republicans. As an active member and former leader of the House Freedom Caucus, Jordan has spearheaded attempts to block Republican legislation that leaned too far to the left. Many if not most Republicans in Congress would normally balk at the notion of making him the most powerful man on Capitol Hill.

Conservative Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan to run for House speaker

http://www.660wxqw.com/news/conservative-ohio-rep-jim-jordan-to-run-for-house-speaker/Jordan’s pitch was a more conservative vision for the House conference. He outlined his commitment to repeal the Affordable Care Act — more commonly referred to as Obamacare — once and for all, reform the welfare system, boost border security and make the tax cuts Congress passed in 2017 permanent.

“I believe we have given the American people reason to question our commitment to reform,” Jordan wrote.

What really separates Tom Brady from every other player on the field

What really separates Tom Brady from every other player on the field

Every season, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gains more people who believe he’s the greatest of all time. It has been a long road for him because he didn’t have the pedigree that other potential GOATs had. He wasn’t the #1 pick in the NFL draft like John Elway or Terry Bradshaw. He was drafted in the 6th round. He didn’t come in with lots of fanfare. His first starting job came as a result of Drew Bledsoe’s injury. He doesn’t have a flashy style like Brett Favre, a complex system like Peyton Manning, or a cannon for an arm like Aaron Rodgers.

He just wins.

The key to his winning ways may have nothing to do with his strong skills, good supporting cast, or excellent game plans. It may just come down to hard work and good ol’ fashioned competitiveness. His mental toughness has been likened to Larry Bird’s or Evander Holyfield’s, two greats in their sports who made up for physical deficiencies by constantly improving mentally even when they weren’t at the top physically.

“Every quarterback can throw a ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but that mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness.”

Football is more than just a physical sport. As Tom Brady has demonstrated, mental toughness may be even more important than 40-yard-dash times or arm strength.

Democrats need a reminder of Nikki Haley’s clear perspective on immigration

Democrats need a reminder of Nikki Haley's clear perspective on immigration

There are two false narratives being shared by most Democrats and leftist media. First, they say there’s no illegal immigration problem at the border that can be partially fixed by a border wall. Second, they believe that Republicans are against legal immigration.

It’s been a long time since a Republican, including the President, has said or done anything against legal immigration. The antiquated notion that all Republicans are racist is clearly untrue. Because of the Democrats’ insatiable hatred for President Trump, they’ve increased their racist rhetoric against Republicans by injecting both false accusations and identity politics into every conversation.

Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has plenty of experience dealing with foreign policy issues. Contrary to popular belief, immigration is a foreign policy issue. It may affect us at home, but the core of the problem is our relationships with and proximity to other nations whose people want to live and work here.\

She also had to deal with it as Governor of South Carolina, so she’s experienced the executive and diplomatic aspects of both legal and illegal immigration. This makes her perspective on the issue more informed than most.

In a quote, she laid out very clearly the perspectives necessary to tackle our border security issue. On one hand, we must stop illegal immigration. It does great harm to the United States and American citizens. On the other hand, we are a nation that has always embraced legal immigration as a means to make the nation stronger. She says it much better in her quote:

“We must fix our broken immigration system. That means stopping illegal immigration. And it means welcoming properly vetted legal immigrants, regardless of their race or religion. Just like we have for centuries.”

Democrats need to be reminded that border security isn’t an expression of racism just as illegal immigration isn’t a version of legal immigration. We have to reduce one in order to justify or even increase the other.

A reminder to GOP lawmakers from Justin Amash

A reminder to GOP lawmakers from Justin Amash

When Representative Justin Amash (R-MI) hadn’t been in Washington DC for very long when he said this amazing quote. At the time, many weren’t paying much attention. After all, many Republicans say similar things when they get to DC, but over time they become jaded, corrupted, or start to get used to being in the DC Country Club.

Amash is different. He has remained consistent with his message and views throughout his career. Now, it’s time for other Republicans to remember what they were sent to Washington DC to do in the first place. Defense of the Constitution is their top priority as it’s the best protection against a government that wants desperately to control every aspect of our lives. From healthcare to the internet to how we use our energy, government intervention has become so commonplace, it’s often hard to see the fabric of our nation behind all the layers of bureaucracy that has been placed on top of it.

“I follow a set of principles, I follow the Constitution. And that’s what I base my votes on. Limited government, economic freedom and individual liberty.”

If more Republicans followed the same principles and didn’t just use them in campaign speeches, we may actually be able to return liberties that have been taken and remove layers of government that have been formed unnecessarily.
