YUGE: Pro-Second Amendment Conservative Candidate Lauren Boebert Upsets Establishment Republican Candidate in the Primaries

Published

on

Pro-Second Amendment activist Lauren Boebert pulled off a major upset against five-term Colorado Congressman Scott Tipton on June 30, 2020.

Tipton is the current five-term congressman for Colorado’s 3rd district.

Boebert is a pro-gun champion who confronted failed Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke during a talk he gave at the Denver suburb of Aurora.  She pushed back against the failed Senate candidate’s desire to confiscate AR-15s by telling him, “”I am here to say: Hell, no, you’re not.” Boebert was referring to O’Rourke’s comments about gun confiscation in the third Democratic primary debate.

Boebert called out Tipton for his milquetoast performance in Congress.

“A sober look at the Tipton Record shows a back-burner representative that has failed to live up to his conservative chops that he touted on his Tea Party-inspired campaign trail,” Boebert declared in a recent Aspen Times column. “If his record lived up to his campaign rhetoric, I wouldn’t feel so compelled to run.”

Tipton conceded defeat graciously.

“(Third) District Republicans have decided who they want to run against the Democrats this November,” Tipton wrote. “I want to congratulate Lauren Boebert and wish her and her supporters well.”

Boebert has not shied away from controversy lately. She recently protested Democrat Governor Jared Polis’ orders to close businesses to fight the Wuhan virus pandemic. She exercised civil disobedience by opening her Shooters Grill restaurant despite the shutdown order in place

Boebert’s race was another case of President Donald Trump endorsing the incumbent, while the primary opponent ended up winning.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
