A Conservative Republican candidate’s plea to his own party

Published

Republicans join Democrats to spend more money and bankrupt America

I am extremely disappointed in the state of the Republican party. As the Republican candidate for California State Controller, it is difficult for me to make an argument on why people should vote Republican. I do not like the argument that the Democrats have gone so far off the deep-end that we have no other choice. I don’t like binary choices or picking the lesser of two evils. If I am going to be a standard-bearer for the Republican party in California, then give me a reason to be proud of my own party.

It is not easy being a Republican in California. Many times the R next to my name is more of a liability than a benefit, and it’s not because of what the Republican party stands for. It’s because many Republicans don’t believe in the principles of limited government, local control, economic freedom, and fiscal responsibility. People don’t like liars and hypocrites and if people can’t trust us, why should they vote for us?

You ask us to vote for you to limit the government, cut spending, and lower the deficit, and once we give you power, you betray us and pass one of the worst spending bills in Congressional history ($1.3 trillion omnibus bill). You demonize Obama’s trillion dollar deficits but once in power, you continue with the reckless irresponsible spending.

If the party wants to spend money like a drunken sailor (no offense to drunken sailors), then they should just come out and say conservatives are no longer welcome in this party. If that is the case, then I call upon the leadership of the GOP to call me and tell me to my face that I’m no longer welcome in the party. As conservative commentatory Steve Deace always says, “Don’t pee on me and tell me that it’s raining,”

As I have always stated, I’m a Conservative that happens to be a Republican, not a Republican that happens to be a Conservative. I’m a conservative because I seek to conserve that which history has proven to be optimal and economic policies grounded in reality, not wishful thinking.

There is not one example in history that overbearing centralized government, that recklessly spends, destroys the purchasing power of currency by printing money and accumulating debt has prospered in the long-run. Just like so many powerful empires and nations before us, they believed that they would never collapse, so do we in our pride and arrogance believe we can go down the same road and buck history and not become just another footnote in history.

We cannot continue down this path forever and I do not believe we are past the point-of-no-return, but if we do not change course soon we will become another footnote in history.

If you love this country as I do, then do the patriotic thing and stop destroying this country with your irresponsible spending. Learn from the mistakes of the past and realize that these policies might have short-term benefits but in the long-run what you are actually voting for is a slow and painful death by suicide, inflicted by you, those that we entrusted to protect us.

Therefore, I call on my own party to do what is right and once again embrace the principles our party was founded upon. Let us be the leaders the people can trust, let us be the leaders that would rather lose an election but in the end, save America from the looming disaster coming towards us. I beg you, become that which you once were.

2020 should be like the real 1984, but instead we’re getting the Orwellian version

2020 should be like the real 1984 but instead were getting the Orwellian version

Something amazing happened in 1984. Every state in the nation other than Minnesota recognized the prosperity and foreign relations prowess of President Ronald Reagan and rewarded him with the biggest landslide in American election history. Poor Walter Mondale didn’t have a chance against the killer economy, our growing strength against enemies, and pride Americans had in their nation and its leader.

We have the same formula brewing today. The economy is actually in better shape than it was under President Reagan. There may be no official Cold War, but we’re pressuring our enemies in Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea in ways that are in line with the pressure President Reagan exerted on the U.S.S.R.

But many Americans, particularly those who make up the radical progressives among Democrats, do not feel pride in their nation. Moreover, they feel nothing but contempt for our leader. Why is this? Shouldn’t everyone be working through our prosperity to engage in the unified patriotism that made the 1984 elections such a lopsided affair? To understand why this isn’t the case, read George Orwell’s 1984.

Go ahead. It’s short. I’ll wait.

The dystopian society that disregarded the truth in Orwell’s terrifying novel was missing one important component. He was detailing the world as it could be based on what he was seeing around him at the time. But he didn’t show us the bridge, the factors and conditions that connected his real world with the future society he envisioned. Instead, he left it mostly to our imagination to determine how a society could go from normal to extreme in such a relatively short period of time.

The bridge he left for us to imagine is no longer relegated to fiction. We’re seeing it in front of us right now. The path to doublethink and Newspeak is paved by those embracing the tenets of a post-truth society. We’re witnessing gender dysphoria being normalized to the point that one must accept the feelings of those experiencing it or we’re called bigots. We’re seeing the post-truth society blur the lines between legal immigrants and illegal immigrants, ignoring the fact that one group (of which I’m included) went through the proper legal process to enter and live in the country the right way while the other group did the exact opposite, disregarding our laws and stealing our sovereignty for themselves. The most troubling example of the post-truth society is watching Democrats and the media ignore the demonstrable prosperity President Trump and GOP policies have brought to minorities. It’s unprecedented how well minorities are fairing in this economy and with the freedoms they’re enjoying, yet we’re being told that everyone on the right must be a racist.

These false narratives, being spread by “Fake News,” represent the greatest threat to the GOP’s election hopes. The desperation of the left that forces them to tell blatant lies would actually be comical if so many people weren’t buying into it all. Ask a Democrat if the President is racist, and many will say he is. Ask them for examples and all they have are lies like “Muslim bans” and “anti-immigrant” policies.

If we stay focused on presenting the truth to Americans, we can achieve what Reagan achieved in the landslide 1984 election. If the left’s lies prevail, we’ll be taking the first big step towards George Orwell’s vision of 1984 instead.

Fake news really is the greatest threat to Republicans in 2020

Fake news really is the greatest threat to Republicans in 2020

In case you’re new to America, here’s an important tip: The vast majority of mainstream media and every big tech company that controls the internet is actively working against President Trump and the Republican Party in hopes of stealing as many elections as possible for the Democrats. This is demonstrable. In some cases they’re engaged in achieving this goal unabashed. Usually, they’re doing it from the shadows while claiming all along to be unbiased.

They way they’re doing it is by wielding the very tool President Trump has warned us about since before his 2016 election. “Fake news” is being created and spread across the various media and social platforms like a plague determined to wreak havoc to America’s constitutional republic. They won’t admit this part of their goal, and to be fair I believe many of them don’t actually realize that’s what they’re doing. They’ve become so delusional due to Trump Derangement Syndrome that they’ve half-believe the lies they’re spreading.

By “half-believe,” they’re not completely stupid. But they extrapolate their biased conclusions through selectively seeing facts and translating them into justification for them to embellish, exclude facts, and even flat-out lie if that’s what it takes to make their point. For example, they don’t really believe the economy is bad, but they have to report that it’s getting bad because they convinced themselves following the 2016 election that President Trump would tank the economy. At first, they waited for it to happen. When it didn’t, they scratched their heads. When it started getting stronger, they didn’t take the logical step of determining the error in their original premise. Instead, they decided to dig deeper to find some shred of evidence to latch onto to keep their premise alive.

If you torture the numbers long enough, you can make them say anything. This is why they’re now in the process of saying the economic downturn they were predicting since the day after the 2016 election is finally going to happen.

The President was right about them all along. Now, he’s also correct in asserting that his own popularity as well as the strength of the GOP in the upcoming election would both be very high if it weren’t for a dishonest, biased media.

As I’ve noted multiple times recently, progressive media, which accounts for most of what people read in the internet or hear on television, is building the Democrats’ narrative. To be more accurate, they’re working with the Democrats to build the narrative together. That narrative can be broken down into three things:

  • Trump is a racist. The failure of the Russian collusion narrative was tangible. We watched news anchors wilt as their anointed savior, Robert Mueller, made a fool of himself on national television in front of Congress. Now, the media has latched onto the racism narrative because otherwise, they’d have to acknowledge the President was right. Nobody likes a racist except other racists, so the media wants everyone to see the President, his party, and their supporters as racists.
  • The economy is going to tank. A common propaganda technique used by the Nazis was to repeat a lie. If you do it over and over again, louder and louder every time, it becomes the accepted truth. Numbers don’t lie, but you can manipulate numbers to support a premise. That’s what the media and Democrats are doing now with the economy.
  • Democrats unite, Republicans divide. The “anti-fascists” of Antifa promote their message by being fascists. The racists in the Democratic Party keep the attention on Republicans by calling them racists. Those who demand unity, especially among Democratic candidates, are doing everything they can to divide us. In the post-truth society the radical progressives hope to build, they need the narrative to be opposite of reality.

We continue to fight fake news. We need help. Without the corporate backing progressive media has, we rely on our generous readers to help us get the truth out to the masses. If you can donate, we promise to fight harder for the truth every day.

Imagine more Americans seeing through the lies mainstream media is telling them. It’s achievable, but we need to keep pressing the truth. If the truth can prevail, 2020 will be a landslide victory for the GOP and President Trump.

Media isn’t reporting ‘bad economy’ – they’re hoping for it

Media isnt reporting on bad economy - theyre hoping for it

The direct narrative legacy media is painting regarding President Trump is blatant and unambiguous. They want you to not only believe he is a racist, but most Republican lawmakers are also racist and anyone supporting them must be a racist as well. That’s their front-facing message as they attempt to push the 2020 election to the Democrats. But there are many associated narratives they’re also trying to drive, and none of them is more despicable than what they’re trying to do to the economy.

As we noted before, perceptions are the most power tool in helping or hurting the economy. When people believe things are good, they buy more and help to make it good. That’s an oversimplification of the complex nature of market and economic trends, but it holds true.

From now until the 2020 election, conservatives can expect an onslaught of negative news reports about the economy. Some will point to signs the economy is about to collapse. Eventually, they’ll shift gears to demonstrate how the economy is in the process of collapsing. Then, they’ll describe ways in which the economy has already collapsed. The more people they can make believe it’s true, the more likely it is that it will become a reality.

My colleague characterized it as a self-fulfilling prophecy, and that’s not inaccurate, but I think the better way to understand it is to realize in the post-truth society radical progressives want to build, they need the economy to collapse. They need capitalism to collapse. This isn’t so much an attempt to create a self-fulfilling prophecy as it is a stepping stone to the end goal of Modern Monetary Theory. That, more than anything else they’re proposing, is the most dangerous because it enables everything else.

But we’re not quite there yet, and MMT deserves a much longer analysis. For now, let’s take a look at a sampling of the narrative progressive legacy media is driving right now. Here’s a snapshot of the Google News “top stories” regarding the economy:

Media Trump Economy

Keep in mind, this isn’t a search for “Trump economy” or “coming economic collapse” or any doom-and-gloom keywords. This is the “full coverage” of our current economic situation, delivered in proper propaganda format by Google News.

The reality is the economy is still humming. Jobs are not hard to find, driving up wages and reducing unemployment. The stock market is strong. The dollar is strong, and while this may be hurting in the trade war with China, it’s giving Americans unprecedented purchasing power.

Getting word of reality out to the masses is the challenge with such an onslaught negative press against the economy. This is one of the reasons it is so important that crowdfunded conservative news outlets like NOQ Report receive as many donations from patriots as possible. Doing so is essentially like giving directly to the Trump reelection campaign because he needs truths like these promoted to voters. People are more inclined to believe what others are saying about issues than politicians, which is why we strongly encourage giving generously to NOQ Report.

The more the left builds the narrative that the economy is bad, the more likely it is the economy will have a downturn before the election. They’re lying now in hopes their lies become reality. We must adhere to the truth that the economy is strong.
