A Serious Question For Republican Congressional Candidates

This is a serious question for Republican congressional candidates: Do you think you can win your campaign running on the record of Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise and his Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry?

To those Republican congressional candidates who reply, “But they passed tax cuts!” let us remind you of two Jim Jordanthings.

First, as CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie often notes, “Voters never reward you for what you have done in the past, every election is about the future – if you don’t believe that see what happened to Winston Churchill. Republicans who listen to DC consultants and run content-free campaigns talking about tax cuts and what little else Congress has accomplished are going to lose.”

Second, voters aren’t as dumb as you and your DC consultants think they are. They know that over the past decade Republican congressional leaders, including the present Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and Assistant House Majority Whip Patrick McHenry have on countless occasions lied and betrayed the millions of voters who trusted them with the government of this great country.

Specifically, and perhaps most egregiously they have:

Betrayed working Americans by placing the economic interests of globalist oligarchs over the economic wellbeing of American families and their constitutional duty to protect and defend the sovereignty of the United States by opening the borders of the country to millions of illegal aliens, who have diluted the American labor force and depressed American wages, thereby destroying the quality of life for millions of citizen families, sapped public resources, such as health care and public education and ravaged the country in an unprecedented wave of savage murders, rapes and other crimes.

Betrayed their oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by admitting, and continuing to admit, millions of unvetted immigrants from cultures that hold values that are anti-constitutional, if not openly and violently hostile to America. In so doing they have brought into our homeland terrorists and anti-American political operatives who have killed American citizens through terrorist acts and work daily and sometimes openly to undermine our system of constitutional liberty.

Betrayed their oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by allowing the creation of “sanctuary cites” and other jurisdictions where, in acts that would in a former age been consider rebellion, the laws of the United States are ignored with impunity and the constitutional power of the federal government is usurped.

Failed to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and conspired with Democrats, in a gross betrayal of their fellow citizens, to dilute the votes of native-born citizens and legal immigrants by granting blanket amnesty and the privileges of American citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.

Betrayed their duty to faithfully oversee the public treasury. At a time of record tax collections, they have engaged in deficit spending that has squandered trillions of dollars in politically motivated spending and pay-offs to favored industries and individuals, leaving American taxpayers with an unprecedented national debt of over $21 trillion with no end to the spending in sight.

Lied about “largest spending cut in history” when their budget the deal was a spending increase and the federal government wrapped up its biggest spending year and its second biggest annual budget deficit ever.

Betrayed American sovereignty and President Trump by passing the 2018 Omnibus spending bill with billions for Democrat-sponsored pork barrel projects and funding for so-called sanctuary cities, but no funding for the promised border wall.

Lied about the real size and nature of the federal government’s unfunded liabilities, including Social Security and Medicare, which top $210 trillion, and are growing with no end in sight and no plan to meet those obligations, upon which millions of American citizens will depend.

Lied about their intention and commitment to repeal Obamacare, consistently voting to fund Obamacare and expand government interference in the healthcare market through such legislative ruses as Omnibus spending bills, the CURES Act and the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act.

Betrayed their constitutional responsibility to ratify treaties by surrendering that power to President Obama on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Obama’s nuclear weapons deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, a nation committed to the destruction of the United States and our constitutional liberty.

Promised and Failed to conduct a credible investigation into what really happened in Benghazi, including determining whether a rescue or relief effort was possible and identifying the actors behind the attack that lead to the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs.

Promised and Failed to repeal the Dodd-Frank “too big to fail” bank bailout bill, leaving consumers deprived of economic choices and the American economy hobbled with billions of dollars in regulatory costs.

Promised and Failed to conduct meaningful oversight of the Obama era Justice Department, including the Operation Fast and Furious gun running operation that led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and put more than 2,000 firearms in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

Conspired with Democrats to cover-up the massive security breach of the House computer network conducted by the Awan brothers and their associates, including the possible role of Pakistani intelligence and the obstruction of justice by Democratic leader Debra Wasserman-Schultz.

Lied about their intention to end funding for Planned Parenthood and institute a culture of life in the federal government by regularly including funding for abortion in annual spending bills, thereby contributing to the murder of approximately 893,000 unborn children in 2017 alone.

Stood Silent as an ever-expanding welfare state destroyed America’s working families by offering government largess in place of the goals of education, marriage and self-improvement.

Stood Silent as unelected bureaucrats and judges persecuted Christians for seeking to live Biblically informed lives according to God’s laws on marriage, the family and sexual mores.

Stood Silent as traditional values were eroded by the endless assault of vulgarity and perversion peddled by soulless entertainment and media monopolies that are destroying American culture in the name of next quarter’s profits.

Failed in their constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the judiciary branch of government and to investigate, and if appropriate impeach, federal judges for legislating from the bench and other extraconstitutional acts.

Failed to protect the constitutional rights and liberties of the people from being suborned by oligarchs who use their market power and control of the mass media to set the terms of America’s political debate and mold public opinion to their progressive political views and economic benefit.

No voter in their right mind – and the conservative voters you need to win are more attuned than ever as to who has been a part of these betrayals, lies and failures – is going to vote for this record.

If you want to win, you need to associate yourself with the one congressional leader who is looking to the future and fights every day for Republicans to keep their promises to America’s forgotten men and women by passing President Trump’s 2016 MAGA agenda – Rep. Jim Jordan.

If you’re running for Congress, and you don’t want to be swept up in the Blue Wave that the media keeps telling us is coming here’s the first and most important thing you can do: Call Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio at (202) 225-2676 and ask him to come campaign for you, and then campaign on the #DoWhatWeSaid agenda of putting Americans back to work, building the Wall, cutting regulations, cutting spending, defunding Planned Parenthood, rebuilding our military and governing according to the limits enshrined in the Constitution.
