Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has officially announced his run for the U.S. Senate, and promises to take the fight to the Washington D.C. swamp if he is elected.
This is not a time for a quiet Senator, or one who wants to make everyone happy and is afraid to take a stand. There is too much at stake. Our national sovereignty is at stake, our constitution is at stake, and our economy is at stake. That is why I am running for U.S. Senate.
— Kris W. Kobach (@KrisKobach1787) July 8, 2019
Kobach intends to succeed Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) in the position, who recently announced his retirement after serving in the position since 1997.
“Kris is a real tough candidate to beat in a primary in Kansas,” said Kansas state Rep. J.R. Claeys, who served as Kobach’s campaign manager when he ran unsuccessfully for governor last year. “I think a lot of people respond to the consistency with which he’s fought for conservative values.”
The GOP establishment is already trying to monger fear against Kobach and keep a real ‘America First’ patriot who would be a great ally of Trump out of the U.S. Senate.
“Just last year Kris Kobach ran and lost to a Democrat,” said Joanna Rodriguez, spokeswoman for the National Republican Senatorial Campaign committee. “Now, he wants to do the same and simultaneously put President Trump’s presidency and Senate Majority at risk. We know Kansans won’t let that happen and we look forward to watching the Republican candidate they do choose win next fall.”
His only other current Republican opponent is Kansas Treasurer Jake LaTurner, but other prominent Republicans are rumored to jump in the race including Kansas Chamber of Commerce President Alan Cobb, Kansas state Rep. Roger Marshall, Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle, former Gov. Jeff Colyer, and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
Claeys believes a crowded field will help Kobach rise to the top.
“When you lower that number that it takes to win with multiple credible candidates, it does make it a lot easier for him to find that upper 20s, lower 30% loyal following that is going to put him over the top,” Claeys said.
Kobach has been a national leader on the issue of border security for many years, working as general counsel for We Build the Wall, Inc. after being shut out of the Trump administration. Kobach was being considered for an immigration czar position, but ‘Never Trumper‘ Ken Cuccinelli ultimately got the role.
Kobach was once Trump’s advisor on immigration issues, devising a plan to immediately end catch-and-release policies to help solve the national emergency on the U.S. southern border. He also worked in the George W. Bush administration under former Attorney General John Ashcroft in the Justice Department where he devised the National Security Entry/Exit Registration System (NSEERS), the first of its kind in U.S. history, following the Sept. 11 attacks.
He was also a pioneer of Arizona’s E-Verify law, which prevents employers from hiring illegal immigrants over U.S. citizens. This has prompted states such as Mississippi and Alabama to adopt the law in recent years after it was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court.
If Kobach wins in 2020, he will likely become the strongest advocate for border security in the Senate. He will have to overcome Democratic and establishment Republican opposition in order to make it happen.
Supreme Court Rules President Trump Cannot Touch DACA with John Roberts Casting the Deciding Vote
SCOTUS stands for amnesty.
The U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) determined on Thursday via a 5-4 ruling that President Donald Trump cannot end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects some 800,000 illegals from being deported from the country.
Trump had sought to reverse an executive order made by former President Barack Obama which granted amnesty to the illegals, believing Obama’s order was unconstitutional. Although it is well-understood that presidents have the authority to reverse executive orders, SCOTUS arbitrarily revoked that power for Trump because he did not give them a reason they found satisfactory for doing so. Trump is now effectively banned from revoking DACA until he can give an explanation that the courts and left-wing special interests determine as acceptable.
Far-left lawyers seized on the coronavirus pandemic to make their case to keep the privileges for illegal immigrants, claiming that DACA recipients included “dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, home health aides, technicians.”
“Termination of DACA during this national health emergency would be catastrophic,” the immigration attorneys claimed in their April 2 filing.
However, hospitals were letting personnel go throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as nurses danced in TikTok videos due to lack of activity on the job. The lack of logic behind their argument did not seem to matter to SCOTUS, who bought it hook, line and sinker.
The SCOTUS ruling comes after a bipartisan push by corporate Republicans and Democrats who have backed widespread amnesty to push down the cost of labor and increase their massive profits:
Billionaire heirs Charles and David Koch are gearing up to wage a public influence campaign in favor of granting amnesty to ‘dreamers,’ illegal immigrants brought to the United States at a young age.
TIME magazine reported that the inheritors of the massive Koch family fortune plan to use their extensive political infrastructure to exert muscle with the hopes of securing a legal status for the approximately 700,000 DACA illegals. The political move would come as the latest effort in the Kochs’ long history of seeking to increase levels of immigration to the United States even higher, further than the current record-breaking annual flow.
Formerly holding a prominent role in national Republican politics, the Koch brothers fell into disrepute among conservatives and Republicans for a series of policy views at odds with the everyday citizen, including financial support for wage-sinking mass immigration. The Kochs declined to support Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, although they had previously been among the most extensive and prolific political donors in the United States…
While fashioning themselves as “free market capitalists,” the family fortune that the eponymous Koch brothers use to advance their political ideals was obtained through methods foreign to their own conception of free markets, to put it mildly. The founder of the family business, Fred Koch, became a multi-millionaire after accepting a partnership with the Soviet Union under its leader Joseph Stalin to build oil refineries. Somewhat shockingly, the overseas business activities of Fred Koch also included the construction of a plant in National Socialist Germany under Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s.
The notion of reclaiming the judiciary is looking more like a pipe dream with rulings such as this and the LGBT mandate against private businesses being approved by so-called conservative justices.
