Former Turning Point USA (TPUSA) organizer Jaden McNeil has launched America First Students (AFS) as an alternative to Conservative Inc. campus-organizing fronts that are insufficiently nationalist on key issues.
McNeil bailed on TPUSA amidst last year’s Groyper wars when TPUSA founder Charlie Kirk was bombarded around the country with uncomfortable questions regarding mass immigration, the LGBT agenda, and foreign aid to Israel.
“My misgivings with TPUSA first arose in the aftermath of the Covington Catholic incident. Many TPUSA associates initially sided with the left-wing mob, condemning the innocent high school students for having the gall to smile in the face of an adult’s aggressive behavior,” McNeil wrote in his resignation letter to the organization.
“I harbor no hatred toward homosexuals; however, as a conservative Christian, I do not believe that gay marriage and drag queens should be glorified and promoted,” he added. “This particular situation is part of a much larger problem: TPUSA constantly cedes cultural ground to the Left while focusing primarily on economics. The organization often ignores social conservatism altogether.”
McNeil made the official announcement regarding the formation of AFS from his Twitter page on Tuesday:

McNeil told Big League Politics that AFS will begin at Kansas State University, the institution in which he is enrolled, and then expand out from there.
“While we do have plans for AFS to be a national organization with a presence across the country, for now we’re focused on launching the Kansas State University chapter,” he said.
The AFS group will facilitate debate with all campus groups, even the Conservative Inc. organizations that have regularly blacklisted and worked with the Left to demonize America First patriots.
“Since AFS is decidedly not affiliated with Conservatism Inc., disagreements with other campus organizations are to be expected,” McNeil said after being asked if he anticipated any conflict from Conservative Inc. organizations.
“However, we value free speech and open debate, and therefore look forward to engaging in good faith with students of all ideological backgrounds,” he added.
AFS will be firmly in the corner of President Donald Trump during his re-election campaign, although the organization’s level of involvement in the effort “has yet to be determined.”
Best selling author and #StandWithICE founder Michelle Malkin, whose career has been under the gun by Conservative Inc. organizers because of her unwillingness to disavow the America First movement, is firmly in the corner of AFS as they pose a challenge to the supremacy of Conservative Inc. on campuses nationwide.
A grass-roots youth movement from the heartland, not from the Beltway. A true, fresh alternative to donor class talking points GOP. Congrats @McNeilJaden @AmFirstStudents – America needs you! https://t.co/Zue3yDuYuX

The cause of American nationalism may finally have representation on campus if this upstart organization is successful in their organizing efforts.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
