Don’t Be Fooled, Elise Stefanik is No America First Patriot

Published

on

Is Elise Stefanik America First or is she just posing?

At VDARE, poster Washington Watcher II wrote an interesting take on the new star within the GOP.

Washington Watcher II notes that “Her aggressive questioning of witnesses during last month’s impeachment hearings made her a national figure and a prominent White House ally.” However, he points out that immigration patriots should be skeptical of Stefanik based on her track record. Ultimately, he believes that “apparent loyalty to the president matters far more than America First.”

What this mean is that representatives like Stefanik will try to co-opt Trumpism to advance “their own corrupt ends.”

The poster argued that “Stefanik’s star power relies on the 35-year-old’s youth and sex. Few young women are in the GOP caucus and the party is desperate (foolishly, ask Ann Coulter) to have its own Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

However, her voting record tells a different story. Stefanik has a putrid D career rating from NumbersUSA (one of the premier immigration patriot groups) since he she was elected in 2014. In this term, she has a mediocre C rating.

Washington Watcher II highlighted Stefanik’s suspect votes on immigration issues:

 

Interestingly, Stefanik’s Northeastern New York State district is dominated by agricultural interests. According to her website, agriculture is the district’s “backbone”. Additionally, she wants to increase the scope of the H-2A visa program in order to increase benefits for the dairy industry.

On other issues, Stefanik is anti-America First. According to Washington Watcher II, Stefanik ” strongly supported Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia collusion and indicated Trump was too pro-Russia.”

Indeed, the Republican Party at large is still suspect when it comes to its embrace of America First immigration policies.

Mass migration is a high stakes issue given its demographic impact and the potential disruption it could cause in America.

For that reason, Trump needs allies in Congress who actually offer substantive policies that advance America First interests.

Stefanik is clearly not one of them based on her voting record.

If immigration patriots want to see their policies through, they will have to thoroughly analyze elected official’s voting records and hold their feet to the fire when they deviate from the America First line.

Action, not fancy rhetoric, is what ultimately matters.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
