Trump-Backed Michigan House Candidate Jacky Eubanks Explains Why the GOP Must Go in a ‘Nationalist, Populist’ Direction

The new slew of Trump-endorsed candidates are bringing a much different ideology to the Republican Party, rejecting the dogmas that have served as the ideological basis for the party since at least the 1980s.

One example of this rising tide of Trump-backed upstarts is Michigan state house candidate Jacky Eubanks. Eubanks regularly posts on the free speech social media alternative, Gab, where she retweets posts from Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), and even the occasional article from Big League Politics. It is clear from Eubanks’ posts that she is about as far from an establishment moderate Republican as one can get.

Eubanks has supported banning private businesses from forcing COVID shots into workers, railed against usury, argued in opposition to free market absolutism, and told people to refuse the COVID-19 jab. Eubanks explained her America First ideals in depth during a recent appearance on Big League Politics Live.

“What I have come to the conclusion is the way forward in America is a more nationalist, populist movement,” Eubanks said, noting that she graduated with honors in Politics and graduated at the top of her class in Economics at Hillsdale University.

Eubanks believes that her ideology is in line with the Founding Fathers, who were far from the “free market absolutists” that many on the U.S. Right make them out to be.

“They believed in having a laissez-faire economy within the United States, but they did not believe that should apply to foreign countries trading with us as a nation. They wanted high tariffs. They wanted to encourage industry here at home,” she said, also noting that income taxes are a bastardization of the Founding Fathers’ vision for America.

Eubanks believes that the GOP establishment is working to stop her Trump-backed rise to the Michigan state house of representatives in order to stop the president’s ongoing efforts to take the party in a more nationalist direction.

“Even though [Trump] came in speaking Americans’ language saying what we wanted to be done, he couldn’t ultimately get it done because no one would cooperate with him because everyone in our political elite class was working against him and working against us as the American people who he represented,” she said.

“So, I think he knows he will never be able to accomplish the goals he set out to accomplish and what we want him to accomplish if he doesn’t change the party completely and get America First candidates at every level,” Eubanks added.
