The Republican National Convention kicked off on Monday with speeches from several major GOP elected officials and the President’s son, with figures such as Donald Trump Jr., Tim Scott, and Matt Gaetz being among the most prominent figures to speak an the first night of the event.
Trump Jr. directed the ire of his speech towards Joe Biden, likening the longtime establishment figure and Democratic nominee to the “Loch Ness monster of the swamp.”
Matt Gaetz made a robust defense of an America First vision and nationalist principles, calling upon Republican to reject the liberal universalist idea that America is little more than an “idea” or an “experiment.”
“America is not just an idea or a constitution, it is our home. We must protect our home with unbreakable Made in America strength. Strength I see every day in President @realDonaldTrump.”

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott spoke on many of the Republican policy accomplishments on the economy, and a plan to rebuild the nation following the ravages of the coronavirus disease.
The McCloskeys, the Saint Louis couple facing political prosecution for defending their home from a mob of Black Lives Matter rioters at the whim of a Soros-funded rogue prosecutor, broke down the need for American patriots to forcefully reject anarcho-tyranny and to stand for the rule of law.
All and all, a strong first night of the convention. All of these large-scale political events tend to have a small piece of cringe here and there, but that comes with the territory of a major political party that represents tens of millions of people in the American political system. The convention, which was broadcast from various locations pursuant to coronavirus restrictions, was mostly decorated with “Make America Great Again” imagery, in contrast to “Keep America Great.”
Melania Trump, Mike Pompeo, Eric Trump and Rand Paul are among the Republican Party figures who will speak on Tuesday night. President Trump will deliver his speech accepting the GOP nomination for President on Thursday.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
