On June 2, Iowa Congressman will be facing his most heated primary to date.
The congressman for Iowa’s 4th district is being targeted by the Republican establishment for previous comments that were distorted by the Fake News media.
Politico reported that “Major Republican power players in Washington and Iowa — from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and operative Karl Rove, to former Gov. Terry Branstad and evangelical leaders — have ganged up to take him down.”
“It’s business, it’s conservative and more moderate, too. It’s basically the whole collection,” declared Nick Ryan, a long-time GOP operative who has opposed King. “You’re seeing all segments of the Republican Party really coming together and working together in an effort to defeat King, and that’s something that’s never happened before.”
Although he has a strong base of support due to his immigration patriotism, establishment Republicans have been trying to do everything they can to unseat him.
Iowa State Senator Randy Feenstra is challenging King in the Republican primary.
Politico noted how much the establishment GOP figures have poured into this race:
Two super PACs run by a former state House speaker and an ally of Gov. Kim Reynolds have weighed in, with one dropping at least $250,000 on TV ads. The Chamber of Commerce has invested $200,000 on TV ads and text messages, and the political arm of the Republican Main Street Partnership ran $100,000 worth of mailers, calls and online outreach. Feenstra also has the backing of the Republican Jewish Coalition, the National Association of Realtors PAC and the National Right to Life Committee.
“We feel so strongly that this is the first time we’ve ever gone against a sitting member,” stated Sarah Chamberlain, the president of the Republican Main Street Partnership. “Some of the things he says are just not helpful.”
Chamberlain’s group was one of the first of the national PACs to pour money into the race.
Politico highlighted some of Republican members of Congress who are jumping on the anti-King bandwagon:
In a rare rebuke of a sitting colleague, five members of the House GOP conference have donated to Feenstra: Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Paul Mitchell (R-Mich.), Steve Stivers (R-Ohio), Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) and Will Hurd (R-Texas), who recently launched a group to help diversify the GOP ranks.
“Steve King’s divisive and unacceptable rhetoric over the years prevents him from delivering results for Iowans,” Hurd told POLITICO in a statement. “And it hurts the Republican Party at a time when we should be competing for votes in communities that Democrats like Joe Biden take for granted.”
The Iowa political establishment is giddy about unseating King. In 2018, Democrat challenger J.D. Scholten only lost to King by 3 points.
If King is defeated, this would be a major blow to America First patriots.He has one of the strongest immigration patriot streaks in Congress. For that reason, King should receive the full support of America Firsters.
Trump will need all the help he can get in Congress, and losing King will neuter his America First policies in a time where every vote will count.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
