Conservative Picks for the Virginia Primary

Published

on

The GOP Establishment did major damage to the party back in 2013 when they sandbagged the Conservative gubernatorial candidate. Since then they have held the reigns on the GOP and the party has suffered considerably. This primary is the first step for Conservatives looking to reclaim their party and their state which has turned blue on them. That first step is helmed by Nick Freitas as he seeks to unseat Tim Kaine. A quality candidate and a skilled campaigner can do the job. He just might be the guy. In the House, Virginia has the opportunity to unseat a few RINOs.

Best Picks: Nick Freitas, Shak Hill
Worst Picks: Corey Stewart, Barbara Comstock
Best Race: US Senate
Worst Race: None

US Senate

By now you’ve likely heard about this race. The social media favorite, Nick Freitas. Freitas is the Conservative favorite, but is he the best? Rand Paul, Mike Lee, the NRA, Austin Petersen, and Ron Paul. The endorsements are high and he is alone in them. He has one of the strongest grasps on liberty out of the Republican candidates so far. He’s up there with Eric Brakey of Maine and Austin Petersen of Missouri. There are too few of this kind of Republican in the Senate and Freitas would be a strong reinforcement.

Opposing him is Corey Stewart. Stewart is a formidable candidate whose love for the heretical Jew-hating Paul Nehlen. But Stewart’s formidability is in his funds and past reputation. He narrowly lost, in last year’s primary, to Ed Gillespie, who didn’t know how to campaign. So that is telling about Stewart’s ability to beat Tim Kaine. EW Jackson is the third candidate.  He lost running for Lt. Governor and is now seeking the Senate. Jackson seems like a strong Christian but otherwise, he’s not a formidable candidate.

Conservative Pick: Nick Freitas

District 1

Rob Wittman is an unchallenged RINO.

District 2

In his first term Scott Taylor has shown he is a RINO. Mary Jones is the lone challenger. She is challenging from the right. She can do no worse.

Conservative Picks: Mary Jones

District 3

There is no Republican running.

District 4

Ryan McAdams is a strong Conservative who brings a lot of needed positions to the table. He is campaigning on fiscal responsibility, reforms that would shrink the government and our basic human liberties. Shion Fenty is a decent candidate but is not running as a strong Conservative.

Conservative Pick: Ryan McAdams

District 5

There is no race. There was a nomination convention.

District 6

The GOP held a nomination convention.

District 7

David Brat is Virginia’s best Conservative.

District 8

Thomas Oh is running unopposed.

District 9

Morgan Griffith is a decent Congressman who is not a RINO. He is unchallenged.

District 10

Barbara Comstock is a severe RINO. She’s a big spender and doesn’t hold principles Conservative views even most RINOs hold. She is opposed by Shak Hill. Shak Hill is a solid Conservative running on Comstock’s record. He would make an excellent Congressman.

Conservative Pick: Shak Hill

District 11

Jeff Doves is unopposed.

What mainstream media knows: Fear of recession causes recessions

Published

Fear of recession causes recessions and the media is hoping to do it again

President Trump’s concerns over mainstream media outlets painting the economy as being on the verge of recession are legitimate. He’s well aware that perceptions drive large portions of the economy. Fears that the market might tumble cause people to sell, which then makes the market tumble. Businesses concerned about the economy slowing may stop hiring, which helps the economy to slow. The circular reasoning becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, which is why the President’s concerns are real.

And the media is playing it up like the rest of the fake news they’re peddling in hopes that stoking fears will prove their premise correct.

It doesn’t matter to them how many people get hurt by this dastardly propaganda technique. They have one goal: Make Trump lose in 2020. If they knock off the Senate Majority and keep the House, that’s a plus as well. But the President is their sole target.

The funny part in this whole scenario is they’re blaming the one progressive component in President Trump’s economic plan for the worldwide economic downturn they’re predicting. The trade war with China is modeled after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s plan. This is, of course, conveniently overlooked as they’ve inverted the stances on tariffs to make them wholly owned by President Trump.

Speaking of inversions, the buzzword of the week is “inverted yield curve.” In layman’s terms, it’s a sentiment indicator that shows when it’s cheaper for the government to borrow for ten years rather than two. It goes against conventional economic wisdom and is claimed to be a precursor to recession. But there’s one factor in the current curve that’s not being taken into consideration. This market-based fear is not a worry about the current or near-future economy as much as it’s an indicator the prospects of Democrat winning the White House in 2020 will erase the progress that has been made in the economy.

In other words, the fearful dollar brokers are so scared of Democratic economic policies, they’re not willing to bet on the economy should a Democrat take over.

There’s a solution: Stop listening to the polls. As we learned in 2016, polls in the days leading up to the election were highly inaccurate. This far from the 2020 election, hypothetical head-to-head polling as completely useless. But it does drive fear, lending itself to the agenda being pushed by progressive media to help tank the economy by telling everybody the economy is about to tank.

Expect more economic lies from fake news media in the coming weeks. They’re pushing hard to destroy the economy regardless of how many Americans suffer from it. It’s a kamikaze mission to take down the President at any price.

Buying Greenland is the type of thinking that helped Trump win in the first place

Buying Greenland is the type of apolitical thinking that helped Trump win in the first place

I’ll keep this very short, barely more than a Tweet. We’re not going to buy Greenland. It’s not that we wouldn’t, but Denmark is unwilling to part with the largest island in the world for some reason. Nevermind that the 56,000 inhabitants of Greenland aren’t happy with Copenhagen even if they’re semi-autonomous. Denmark has said they won’t even entertain the idea of selling off their huge chunk of ice.

Meanwhile in America, the thought he President would even consider it as a possibility has brought in mocking and ridicule from progressive mainstream media. But here’s the thing. This is the type of outside-the-box thinking that helped President Trump win election. Politicians don’t think in terms of buying land from other countries. Real estate developers do. Buying Denmark would be the biggest buy in centuries, literally. It’s a perfect idea to belong to President Trump.

If Americans would have wanted the swampy status quo with no new ideas, we would have elected Hillary Clinton. We voted for Trump because he doesn’t think like a politician even if he knows how to handle them well.

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis?

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is one of the bluest major cities in America. The race for the Democratic nomination for the MN-5 district is essentially the general election because Democrats have held the seat belonging to Minneapolis since 1963. The closest a Republican has come to winning the district in this century was Alan Fine in 2006 who “only” lost to Keith Ellison by 34.3%. Oftentimes, the Democrat wins by over 50 points.

But Republican Lacy Johnson seeks to make history. He’s not making the attempt by being a moderate RINO trying to coax the people of Minneapolis into believing he’s basically a Democrat. His platform is boldly conservative and includes a balanced budget amendment, school choice, and a bear-hug embrace of President Trump’s economic policies.

Growing up with nine siblings in modest circumstances didn’t make him feel poor. It did make him realize it’s his responsibility to support his family as an adult and not rely on government. This is exactly the type of mentality we need more of in Washington DC. It’s the kind of mentality that will serve Minneapolis well.

Under normal circumstances, even being a strong candidate isn’t enough in Minneapolis when you have the letter (R) next to your name on the ballot. But in 2020, Johnson has one major advantage that should give the GOP hope. He’s going up against Ilhan Omar, the “Squad” member who has been nothing but an embarrassment to herself, Minneapolis, and the United States of America. Despite accomplishing essentially nothing outside of Twitter in her brief tenure, she still walks the halls of Capitol Hill as if she’s a diva rockstar. That’s part of the charade her “Squad” members portray; they’re a shame even to Democrats but because they’ve gained nationwide popularity among radical progressives, they’ve been allowed to keep playing their games. For now.

But even as Omar struts around Capitol Hill, she’s ignoring the people who put her in office in the first place. To Omar, Minneapolis is merely a place where she’s forced to campaign. We can see this based on her actions; literally nothing she has done in DC has even come close to affecting Minneapolis residence. That’s uncanny, even for a Democrat.

The people of Minneapolis may finally vote red for two reasons: (1) Lacy Johnson is a winner with great ideas, and (2) Ilhan Omar has been nothing but an embarrassment, absent from Minneapolis since her election. President Trump should endorse him.
