Published

Famed Conservative news aggregator Drudge Report recognizes the anti-gun shenanigans that D.C. Republicans are trying to pull off.

Yesterday, in its front page, its headline story was titled “REPUBLICANS COALESCE AROUND GUN CONTROL.”

Under “red flag” laws, law enforcement would be allowed to confiscate firearms from individuals who allegedly pose a “threat” to themselves or others. These laws are already present in multiple states, and now appear to have strong bipartisan support in Washington D.C.

Right off the bat, Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senator Lindsey Graham endorsed “red flag” legislation. President Donald Trump seconded their motion and said that he would sign such a law if it came to his desk.

Senate Majority Whip John Thune of South Dakota has joined them as well. He told his his hometown newspaper, The Argus Leader, that he was “confident Congress will be able to find common ground on the so-called red flag issue.”

Additionally, Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey wants to revive his failed universal background check bill that he co-sponsored alongside Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin in 2013. Toomey tweeted, “I also agree with Senator Lindsey Graham that we should pass a bipartisan ‘red flag’ measure that enables families and law enforcement to obtain a court order to keep guns away from dangerous individuals.”

Political commentators, who are in touch with Middle America, strongly disagree with Republican leadership on this move.

Like Drudge, Rush Limbaugh understands that red flag bills are gun control. But this time with a fancy title.

During his show on August 6, 2019, Rush Limbaugh described red flag bills as a “pipeline to gun control.”

Tensions are running high in America.

Nevertheless, Republican leadership must maintain its calm and respect the will of its voters and not the hand-wringing from the anti-gun media.

One false move, and the floodgates to massive civilian disbarment will burst wide open.

 

 

Midterms 2022

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
