Conservative Picks for the North Dakota Primary

Published

on

North Dakota is considered flyover country often neglected by those on the coasts. One would stereotype North Dakota for being Conservative, but Conservatism is almost dead in North Dakota. All of their Congressmen are reckless spenders who are poor defenders of liberties. This primary will not change that. Kevin Cramer stole the show before it even began. He’s vacated the at large seat in favor of the Senate seat. He is sure to win, and no one dared challenge him for one of the easiest to flip Senate seats. It’s almost like there’s a lack of political ambition from everyone other than Cramer. But with that lack of ambition comes the acceptance of mediocrity.

Best Pick: Thomas O’Neill
Worst Pick: Kevin Cramer
Honorable Mention: Paul Schaffner
Best Race: None
Worst Race: all of them

US Senate

North Dakota is perhaps the Senate seat that could flip with the most ease. Rep. Kevin Cramer is seeking the promotion. Since 2013 he has held a Liberty Score of 37. The unimpressive, if not outright RINO mark comes from his reckless spending. He is sure to contribute to the Senate’s lack of Conservatives. The most we can expect from Kevin Cramer is orthodox Republican voting, nothing more. His opponent is Thomas O’Neill is a minister after retiring from the Air Force. His campaign is limited to fighting corruption, specifically mentioning Congressmen using taxpayer funds to cover up their own misconduct. He also has a strong focus on maintaining defense. Lastly a big focus is on scaling back out of control government agencies. O’Neill stands almost no chance of winning, especially after his sad showing at the ND GOP convention.

Kevin Cramer is a formidable candidate winning the at-large House seat multiple times. This race is basically the same thing with less accountability.

Conservative Pick: Thomas O’Neill

North Dakota At Large

With Cramer vacating the seat, four Republicans vie for the opportunity to fill the seat. Tom Cambell likely would have been the pick until he withdrew.

Tom Cambell endorses Kelly Armstrong in order to untie Conservatives. There may yet be some strong conservatism in this state after all. Kelly Armstrong is a state senator, but isn’t a strong Conservative, nor are many others. Then there’s Tiffany Abentroth. She’s running a campaign focused on agriculture, education and veteran issues. When candidates run on agriculture, they usually tout maintaining government regulations as the case in Nebraska. She isn’t as specific but there’s reason to be cautious. Lastly there’s Paul Schaffner. This clown was found guilty of soliciting a prostitute. This race sucks ass. Tiffany Abentroth is a veteran, so for that reason, she’s the pick.

Tucker Carlson: The truth about the Koch brothers and GOP

Tucker Carlson The truth about the Koch brothers and GOP

Considering how much influence the Koch brothers and their network of GOP mega-donors have over American politics, there is surprisingly very little discussed about their actual policy initiatives. This is by design. In many ways, their perspectives shield them from scrutiny by the American people because neither ideological side wants the people to know much about them.

Progressives rail against them because they back the Republicans, but they do little to expose their policies because in many ways, Democratic insiders quietly appreciate the policies they force as primary benefactors to GOP candidates. They are very much in favor of open borders, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and criminal justice reform. Their influence can be attributed to the First Step Act getting passed by Congress and signed by the President.

Conservatives complain about them, but their ability to get and keep Republicans in office makes it very rare for any GOP lawmakers to say anything against them. It takes people like Tucker Carlson and news outlets like NOQ Report to get the word out to conservatives.

The reality about the Koch brothers is their policies and initiatives are mostly Libertarian with a sprinkling of authoritarianism on top. This is why they’re in favor of the type of digital censorship being used against many conservatives on social media sites. Their best friend is ignorance. They’re strongest when they’re in the shadows. They cannot afford for social media to be used to expose them for what they really are.

This is important as we push forward with the American Conservative Movement. We will fight socialists in the Democratic Party, but we must also fight the corruption that has infiltrated the Republican Party as well. The Koch brothers are at the center of this corruption and work daily to subvert conservatism.

Thanks to Tucker Carlson and other courageous conservatives willing to speak out against the Koch brothers, we may finally be able to spread the word about the people who make much of the GOP moderate and even progressive.

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Listen to every word Burgess Owens says about reparations

Former NFL player Burgess Owens delivered an amazing speech before Congress today talking about reparations. He called for them, but not from the United States government as Democrats are wanting. He wants reparation paid by the Democratic Party to the African-Americans Owens believes have been hurt by the leftist ideology espoused by today’s Democrats.

The opening minute of his speech was exceptional:

“Thank you so much for this opportunity. I’m gonna take a different tack from beginning. We are at this point, this is not about black and white, rich or poor, blue collar, white collar. We’re fighting for the heart and soul of our nation.

“We have a very, very special country instilled with the Judeo-Christian values that allowed every single generation become better than the last, and that has not ended, that has not stopped… until now. We’re telling our kids a little bit something different, that they don’t have the opportunities that we had.

“I’m going to talk about some ideologies and when I talk about them I’m not talking about people. People change. I used to be Democratic until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race. So when I talk about these ideologies, ideologies don’t change. People do.

“We are fighting for the heart and soul of our nation against socialism, Marxism, and evil that it has brought to us in distilling of our history. Karl Marx said it best, the father of socialism, an atheist, anti-semite, and a blatant racist.”

As good as his opening was, the rest of it was even better.

In our post-truth society, the words of Burgess Owens will be dismissed or ignored by the left. But hopefully some will hear them and start asking questions about Democrats as he did.

AOC offers no solutions and ‘not one dime’ for DHS to fix ‘concentration camps’

AOC offers no solutions and not one dime for DHS to fix concentration camps

Let’s play a quick game of “read between the lines.”

Alexandria Ocasion-Cortez complained about migrant detention centers at the border being “concentration camps.” I disagree, but so be it. Let’s assume the detention centers are inhospitable and even inhumane based on the sheer mass of people coming across the border and filing asylum claims. One would think the solution would be to improve conditions by increasing funding so quality and quantity of housing at the centers across the border can be improved.

But that’s not what AOC wants to happen.

“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children and families,” she Tweeted.

So, back to reading between the lines…

The current detention centers are insufficient to handle the influx of migrants.

But AOC and the party she now controls won’t vote to fund them at all, let alone giving them sufficient funds to handle the masses.

Therefore, AOC wants migrants to be immediately released into the interior of the United States once they receive their hearing date, which 90% won’t attend anyway.

As AOC takes control of her party, her “leadership” is to recommend not allowing migrants to be detained in “concentration camps” and no funding to improve them. She wants them released without restrictions.
