There are less than 100 days to go until the primary on May 15th, and our campaign just continues to pick up more momentum. We just received two more major endorsements, and more extraordinary people are joining the campaign with each passing day. If you would like to join the team, you can find our volunteer page right here and our online donation page right here. Earlier this evening we learned that we have officially been endorsed by Vote Team Trump, and we are extremely excited about that. Those involved in the Trump movement all around the country are recognizing that this extremely close race here in Idaho is one of the most critical Republican primaries. One of my main opponents has publicly stated that Donald Trump “can go straight to hell”, and if he wins this open seat it will be an absolute disaster for the Trump movement.
But we are not going to allow that to happen. Our campaign is absolutely surging, and now we have the support of Vote Team Trump. If you are not familiar with Vote Team Trump, here is a little bit about them from their official website…
VoteTeamTrump.com is the official web site of the Vote Team Trump movement. We are not an organization, corporation, retailer, or reseller. We do not accept financial resources or assets from anyone in exchange for any product or service. We are not affiliated with any political party or action committee.We are a variegated grassroots movement that utilizes personal finances, assets, time, and talent to inform the People of Trumpian candidates. Our one common bond is the Trumpian platform: deregulation and downsizing of the federal government, legal immigration, an end to political terrorism, American economy first, American energy independence, preservation of American history and culture, states’ rights, and the American Constitution.
This endorsement from Vote Team Trump comes immediately after being endorsed by the largest Tea Party group on Facebook. With nearly 100,000 members nationally, it is a very powerful force on Facebook, and we believe that they will be able to move a significant number of votes in our direction.
When Idaho State Senator Dan Foreman endorsed our campaign a few weeks ago on the steps of the Idaho state capitol, that was a major turning point. Senator Foreman is one of the top conservative voices in the entire state, and since that time conservatives all over the state have begun coalescing around our campaign.
With just over three months to go until election day, this is the time for the final big push. Over half of all voters are still completely undecided in this very tight race, and we need to reach them before the other candidates do. There is so much that needs to be done in the coming weeks, and at this moment we do not have the resources to do it all. We very much need your help right now, and so I am asking all of my core supporters to consider contributing at least 25 dollars to our campaign this month.
Another key turning point was the first candidate debate in Coeur d’Alene a couple of weeks ago. We were widely acclaimed as the big winners of that debate, and a number of conservatives that were impressed with our performance during that debate have come on board as new volunteers. If you have not seen our highlights from that debate yet, you can view them in high quality on YouTube right here. We absolutely fried the other candidates, and for a couple of them this candidate forum was immensely damaging to their campaigns.
Tomorrow we hit the campaign trail yet again, and if you live in central Idaho I hope that you will make plans to join us. On Sunday the 11th, I will be speaking with voters in Potlatch, Idaho at 2 PM at the Scenic 6 depot.
On this trip we will also be making stops in Lewiston and Grangeville, and later this month we will be making an extended visit down to south Idaho.
If you believe in what we are trying to do, this is your opportunity to be involved in a major congressional campaign. We need as many volunteers as possible, we desperately need more donors to step forward from all over the country, we need more help sharing the material on our official Facebook campaign page, and more than anything we need our prayer warriors to be interceding for us.
If every one of my regular readers were to donate 25 dollars today, we could literally stop raising money tomorrow and focus all of our energy on campaigning for the next 90 days. With Donald Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to take our government back. For those of you that are not familiar with our campaign yet, the following are 28 key things that I stand for…
#1 A Pro-Trump Conservative – Donald Trump helped restore my faith in America by winning the 2016 election, and I will fight like mad to implement his agenda if I am elected to Congress.
#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and all federal officials should be banned from working as lobbyists for at least ten years after they leave government service.
#3 Restoring The Rule Of Law – For decades, the American people have watched professional politicians commit crime after crime and get away with it. It is time to restore the rule of law in this country, and a great place to begin would be with Hillary Clinton and her close associates. It will be a great day for America when they are finally put in prison for the rest of their lives.
#4 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.
#5 Getting The Money Out Of Politics – As a new member of Congress, I would be expected to raise approximately $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee. In order to “pay their dues”, every day that the House is in session members of Congress go to call centers across from the U.S. Capitol and spend up to four hours a day making calls back to their districts begging people to donate money. One of the things that makes me fundamentally different from my opponents is that I have pledged not to make these calls. Instead, I am going to spend my time in Washington doing the work that the people of Idaho sent me there to do.
#6 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and I am making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.
#7 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Let me be very clear – I will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch. You have a constitutional right to own any gun that you want, and you have a constitutional right to carry that gun anywhere that you want.
#8 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.
#9 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.
#10 Cut Red Tape – As President Trump has proposed, two existing government regulations should be eliminated for every new regulation that is enacted.
#11 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – I will work very hard to get federal control freaks off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.
#12 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. I want to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and I want control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.
#13 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.
#14 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.
#15 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.
#16 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so I support President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.
#17 End Sanctuary Cities – President Trump has proposed cutting off all federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities”, and I will fight very hard to get this done.
#18 Supporting Our Veterans – My father is a vet, and I will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.
#19 Fighting Islamic Terror – I fully support President Trump’s fight against ISIS, and I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.
#20 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.
#21 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.
#22 Energy Independence – The United States has abundant reserves of oil, natural gas and clean coal, and we need to take the regulatory shackles off of the energy industry so that we can start moving toward energy independence.
#23 Resisting The Globalists – We must reduce the power and influence of the United Nations, and we must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.
#24 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If I am elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.
#25 Health Freedom – I believe that the government should be encouraging natural health remedies instead of discouraging them, I believe that parents should always make the health decisions for their own children, and I believe that we desperately need to clean up our air, our water and our food.
#26 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. I am 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.
#27 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.
#28 An Unashamed Christian – Like President Trump, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.
In the vast majority of the races for the House and the Senate around the country, we already know who is going to win.
Our race is one of the very few races that is completely undecided, and if we all pull together we can win this thing.
Please help us if you can. Our numbers are surging, and to continue that surge we need to get our message to the more than 400,000 registered voters in this district within the next three months. We have a very clear path to victory, but we must raise the resources that we need in order to execute our gameplan.
I would like to thank everyone that has already joined our team. Because of you, we have already shaken the world of Idaho politics to the core. If we ultimately pull out this victory, it will be the biggest shock in the history of Idaho politics, but it won’t be a surprise to us.
The Trump movement is all about winning, and we are going to win races all over the nation in 2018.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
