Finally, Idaho has an Attorney General willing to do his Job

The election of Attorney General Raul Labrador could be a game-changer for Idaho. We have already seen AG Labrador stop the ridiculous and costly prosecution of Sara Brady and he is now entering the fracas in the Caldwell School District. The school district board closed down a recent meeting because of strong controversy over their […]

The Quality of Mercy

My Quaker grandmother protested in front of the American Friends Service Committee on the campus of Swarthmore College early on during the Viet Nam War. Her son was a Navy fighter pilot and because he was flying in Viet Nam—Corsairs, my grandmother was shunned at Quaker meetings and ostracized in the community of mostly pacifists […]

Political Grudges Run Deep

Former Speaker of The House Paul Ryan is not one of my favorite politicians. His one quote that “my faith informs every aspect of my life”, is a statement that I can admire. I have always been interested in “process”. One of my organic chemistry teachers Howard Curry whenever a student asked a question, would go […]

When the Right goes Wrong

There has been a lot of talk and speculation about the cadence and tenor of the upcoming Idaho November General Elections. Specifically, the lack of engagement by establishment Republicans, affectionately known as THE DEMOCRATIC WING OF THE IDAHO REPUBLICAN PARTY (DWIRPs)—they feel RINO is disrespectful, it is in my most humble opinion an affront to […]

When the RINOs see the Elephant in the Room

We find it interesting that 50 supposedly Republicans including some prominent former officeholders are supporting Tom Arkoosh who is running as a democrat for attorney general. We have to ask the question why would these people who claim to be staunch republicans be supporting a democrat? The answer is quite simple my friends these are […]

Congressman Russ Fulcher Endorses Raul Labrador for Attorney General

In a recent conversation on the Kevin Miller show, I asked Congressman Russ Fulcher if he would endorse former congressman Raul Labrador for the position of Attorney General of Idaho. Well to many Idahoans’ surprise. Congressman Fulcher said he would be pleased to endorse Raul for that position. The 50 geriatric RINO Republicans who recently […]

Feeling Young

I am 71 years old, but today I am feeling rather young and spritely. When I look at the lists of fifty Idaho Republicans (there has been more than one list published), who are supporting Raul Labrador’s opponent in the State of Idaho Attorney General election, I would be remiss in not pointing out that […]

Follow The Money — Remember The Names

If Mitt Romney ran against Donald Trump in Idaho, Trump would receive upward of 60% of the vote from Idahoans in a one-on-one election—UNLESS—the vote was taken in the Idaho legislature where the results would be reversed. This is just another way of saying that the elected Republican majority in our State is very much […]

Tooling and Trolling

I have watched the Idaho Debates this week and in addition to listening to what the candidates have to say, I have listened to the panelists and the way they have framed questions and, on several occasions, inserted themselves into the debate. This happened once to Raul Labrador during the Attorney General Debate, and he […]

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 […]

Is it time for a Mutiny? Recall Governor Little?

Who is steering our conservative ship Idaho? Captain Bligh? It is seldom that we see governors recalled, although two have been recalled successfully in U.S., with the most recent being Scott Walker of Wisconsin who was victorious in a recall election with the Mayor of Milwaukee. The second was Gray Davis from California in 2003 […]
