America First Congressmen Mark Meadows to Retire in 2020

Published

on

North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows, a staunch America First supporter, announced on Thursday, December 19, 2019 that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his term in office.

Meadows served North Carolina’s 11th District for four terms.

In a statement, Meadows said that he “struggled” with leaving what has generally considered to be a “temporary job.”

“For everything there is a season. After prayerful consideration and discussion with family, today I’m announcing that my time serving Western North Carolina in Congress will come to a close at the end of this term,” Meadows stated. “This was a decision I struggled with greatly.”

“My work with President Trump and his administration is only beginning,” Meadows continued. “This President has accomplished incredible results for the country in just 3 years, and I’m fully committed to staying in the fight with him and his team to build on those successes and deliver on his promises for the years to come. I’ve always said Congress is a temporary job, but the fight to return Washington, DC to its rightful owner, We The People, has only just begun.”

Meadow’s announcement came the day before the North Carolina filing deadline, which forced him to make the decision today. As opposed to some of his North Carolina congressional colleagues, Meadows was not deeply impacted by the state’s congressional re-districting measures. Meadow’s 11th District is expected to remain GOP hands, however.

The North Carolina congressman has been one of President Donald Trump’s strongest advocates. He served as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus during the first two years of the Trump administration and played a crucial role in trying to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Meadows established his trailblazing credentials when he tried to out former House Speaker John Boehner. He has stood strong with the president throughout the entire impeachment drama in 2019.

Rumors are circulating that Meadows could be joining the Trump administration in some capacity. Current speculation points to Meadows’s interest in being Trump’s chief of staff.

Meadows dismissed rumors that he would be running for North Carolina’s open Senate seat in 2022, when Republican Senator Richard Burr is expected to retire.

Congressman come and go, but Meadows will be especially missed by America First patriots.

Hopefully, North Carolina’s 11th district is occupied by an America First successor.

Trouble in Paradise: Establishment Democrats Working to Eliminate AOC’s House Seat

Published

on

According to an article from Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, Democrat leadership is making an effort eliminate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s house seat.

Elected in 2018, in New York’s 14th congressional district, AOC has become the face of a new generation of Democrat radicals.

Jarret noted however that AOC’s extreme politics is creating a “divide amongst her own party, even with the head honcho herself, Nancy Pelosi.”

From radical open borders policies to Medicare for All, AOC is pushing the legislative envelope. She has also set up a PAC “Courage to Change” that is currently funding seven House candidates. On Twitter, AOC declared, “it’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more.”

However, The NY Post noted that Democrat leadership are making efforts to derail her hype train. In the article, the Post noted that AOC “may not last in Congress.” The freshman congresswoman is “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.”

The Post concluded, “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census does their best to eliminate her seat.”

This recent struggle shows how the culturally radical wing of the Democrat Party is starting to butt heads with the establishment gatekeepers.

This is indicative of a cultural and political realignment where old school Democrats are likely to be eaten alive their radical offspring thanks to demographic shift.
