We Have Ourselves to Blame

I’ve now had five days to digest the Idaho primary election results. I must admit that in the statewide races except for Raul Labrador winning the Attorney General’s race, conservatives took a “whipping”. But we have a few things to learn and if we don’t admit to our shortcomings, we will continue to make the […]

“Hail Mary” Idaho needs a J.D.Vance

Constitutional conservative Christians are being marginalized by establishment RINOs, a lap dog media, and now their sycophants in government agencies including a minority in our traditional ally—Law Enforcement. In Ohio thanks to the backing and endorsement of Donald Trump, JD Vance overcame a ten-point deficit in three months and won the Republican Primary by ten […]

Fight or Flight

There is a big hole in the hearts of Idaho Constitutional Conservatives four weeks before the Idaho Republican Primary Election. The emptiness and sense of despair in a State that that voted in 2020 for Donald Trump (63.6%) for conservatives who see candidates running Statewide with large margins like Governor Little in a recent poll […]

Governor Little, Please Stop the Torture of our Elderly

Dear Governor Little, I’m speaking on behalf of my elderly mom, age 88 as well as all of the elderly that are suffering the consequences of the Covid-19 responses. We are months beyond “flattening the curve” and now the focus is “positive cases”. The extreme measures taken whenever these “positive” cases are reported are destroying […]

Does Brad Little’s Tenure make him Non-Debatable?

Reprinted with permission of the Idaho Freedom Foundation There’s a certain amount of hubris that Gov. Brad Little’s campaign team had to muster up in order to issue the decree that the governor’s tenure is “non-debatable.” After all, that wasn’t some off-the-cuff remark that was released last week when Little bowed out of any debate […]

Red State, Blue State, Brown State

Thanks to Donald Trump politics in our country have been turned inside out and upside down. The Republican Party nat,ionwide that once was the pawn of large companies and intimately connected to the “corporate industrial complex” is now the party of blue-collar patriotic Americans. Our military that was once respected and honored and apolitical, has […]

Capitulation is not Progress

Brad Little is a good man. He loves his family and many of his corps values I share. He is Pro-Life and Pro-Gun. But he is not a conservative. He is Pro Big Government. He is a Mitt Romney opportunist, but like many RINOs in our State he is afraid to take off the camouflage […]

Requiem for a Conservative State

This past week, Ammon Bundy, a candidate for governor of Idaho, was arrested and is now being subjected to a total of 10-days in jail (with no bail option) and a $3,000 fine. This is how the competition gets rid of a threat to the corrupted establishment run by IACI, Governor Doolittle and his den […]

The New Normal?

As we all try to venture back to a normal life after two years of our government instilling fear into every man, women and child on the planet we should have learned many important lesions. The first lesion is don’t trust anything your government officials tell you until you have proof they are telling the […]

“Self Interest” vs “Selfish Interest”

There is a difference between “self-interest” and “selfish interest”. The difference can be found in the word “selfness”. Today we are watching captains of industry, leaders in academia, our Ecclesiastical leaders in The Church(s), and special interest corporate lobbyists like IACI/IMA/IHA, and the CofC proceed in their own “selfish” interests. Does IACI now control our […]

State of Idaho v. Ammon Bundy

This story begins on Mar 13th 2020 when Governor Little put the State of Idaho under emergency order. In my opinion he only used this power to get federal money and arbitrary authority. Idaho at the time only had one COVID case according to the governor’s official website. I began looking at what other states […]
