New Mexico Congressional Hopeful Defeats Liberal Secretary of State’s Ruling to Keep Her Off the Ballot

Anise Golden Morper will be on the ballot in New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District.

The New Mexico supreme court has determined by a 4-1 decision to restore Republican Congressional candidate Anise Golden Morper to the ballot after the state’s liberal Secretary of State attempted to toss her from the 3rd District race.

New Mexico secretary of state Maggie Toulouse Oliver, a far-left Democrat, attempted to toss Morper from the ballot, alleging that Morper’s campaign used improper forms to collect signatures. Morper maintained that her campaign used the forms printed off of the state website and was completely lawful in her conduct.

“It’s really up to the voters who they want to represent them. Let’s leave it up to the voters,” Morper said while the case was ongoing. “I believe that they have a fear that I can beat their Democrat nominee, and therefore they are attempting to remove me so I cannot be a threat and there’s no chance for me to win this seat.

“It’s unfair game playing. If the field was equal, we would allow everyone’s petitions to be seen, especially if the signatures were valid,” she added.

The state supreme court found Morper’s arguments to be convincing, and they in turn ordered for the district court to vacate their previous order disqualifying Morper and entered in a new order directing the Secretary of State to allow her on the ballots.

Morper talked to Big League Politics about the challenges that have resulted from the Secretary of State attempting to torpedo her rising campaign.

“In a way, it set me back, but in another way, it was amazing the support I had, and to see the people that wanted their voices heard,” she told Big League Politics.

“It was bittersweet because I was moving in a certain direction and had to divert attention away from running my campaign, but it was more sweet than bitter because of the support of the people,” she added.

Morper sees the fight as being more than about her campaign and having broader 1st Amendment implication. She felt that all of the people who signed her petitions had their voices nullified by the secretary of state’s unjust order that was overturned.

“We have a right to petition the government, and that’s what this case was all about,” she explained. “It wasn’t just me who won. This was a victory for the 1st Amendment.”

Morper explained that this victory is emblematic of how she will successfully defend the rights of the people once she elected in Washington D.C.

“I am the strongest candidate. I am the candidate that will take on big government and to protect the Constitutional rights of the people,” she said.

Following the New Mexico supreme court ruling, Morper is back on the ballot for the 3rd Congressional race, which is an open seat due to the departure of influential Democrat Rep. Ben Ray Luján, who is running for U.S. Senate. Morper’s GOP primary opponents include Navajo Nation member Karen Bedonie, cattle rancher Audra Brown, former Santa Fe County Commissioner Harry Montoya, and engineer Alexis Johnson.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
