(Chuck Muth) – In a letter to Abigail Adams penned in 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote…Campaign Boot Camp in Norwalk, CT on Saturday. What a GREAT group of conservative candidates and activists…“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then.” And with that in mind… I got back to Vegas late last night from doing my
That’s State Rep. Kim Fiorello, who organized the event along with the Federated Republican Women of Southern Connecticut, sitting to my immediate right. What a bright, shining, conservative rising star! I honestly think I got more from them than the other way around. These folks live in a solidly “blue” state – behind enemy lines. But they aren’t giving up. Instead, they’re fighting back like there’s no tomorrow. Which reminds of this slightly altered quote by Coach Jimmy McGinty in the movie “The Replacements” … “Now (the Democrats have) made a big mistake out there. They haven’t been afraid of you. And they should be. Because you have a powerful weapon working for you: There is no tomorrow for you. And that makes you all VERY DANGEROUS PEOPLE!” If things under Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats continue as they are, there won’t be a tomorrow for this nation as founded. And hanging out with Rep. Fiorello and these dedicated folks – who took an entire day out of their lives to join me for this training seminar – has renewed by faith that we can and will prevail…in November and beyond. Jefferson’s “spirit of resistance” lives. There’s hope. Thank you, Norwalk! Thieves Should Be Hung from Cranes! Alas, I came home from Connecticut to find myself a victim of the ongoing Biden crime wave. I have a small, one-room casita behind my house that I use as my office. And while I was gone, someone broke into it Saturday night and ransacked the place.
Still going through the mess to see what was stolen. This ongoing crime wave is NOT the fault of the police department. This is the fault of our soft-on-crime court systems which, at best, give thieves a little slap on the wrist. As such, criminals of all stripes know that even if they’re caught there won’t be any real price to pay. Catch-and-release. Revolving door justice for thieves, vermin and scum. Judges and district attorneys MUST stop issuing get-out-of-jail-free cards. Soft sentences encourage crime. Stiff penalties encourage deterrence. It’s LONG past time to start throwing the book at ‘em again. Sorry, Lefties, You Can’t Have It Both Ways So a frustrated, ticked-off conservative podcaster confronted Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak and gave him a piece of his mind a week ago in a Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. And indignant, self-righteous liberals came unglued. This encounter was not something I support. I actually think it’s counter-productive. But I do understand the “root cause” – which, of course, the left constantly brings up to excuse actual criminal behavior, like, you know, breaking-and-entering and theft. And in a real way, Sisolak brought this on himself. He has literally destroyed lives, families, jobs and businesses for almost two years now with his draconian shutdown orders and his ongoing abuse of “emergency” powers to dictate to Nevadans how to live our lives – including his long-running mask mandate (only recently suspended). And throughout that time, to the best of my knowledge, he has yet to hold even ONE public town hall meeting with citizens where they could confront and question him without being ignored or censored by his handlers. He’s hidden from “the people” who have been harmed by his bad judgment and bad management, except for a small number of restricted, choreographed political events not open to the general public. Anyway, the day after the podcaster’s confrontation, I wrote… “For everyone skewering the man who confronted @GovSisolak in a restaurant this weekend, please produce proof of your similar outrage at what Rep. Maxine Waters said about doing the same thing to Trump supporters or just shut up and sit this one out. You can’t have it both ways.” Trolls on the left, of course, dismissed my point about Mad Max and called it “whataboutism.” As if we’re not supposed to point out the hypocrisy of these libs. But I’m standing my ground and won’t back down. I practice what I preach… On January 6, 2021, as the “Stop the Steal” rally in DC got out of hand and turned into something completely unacceptable by a comparatively small group of bad actors from our side, I called them out WHILE IT WAS HAPPENING. Here are two of the tweets I posted as I watched the events unfold on television…

I’m hearing now that the explanation for holding the endorsement vote at the state convention rather than by the elected members of the Central Committee is that the party’s bylaws only allow for an endorsement vote by the convention delegates, not the Central Committee. Also, that there are almost 400 members of the Central Committee, while more than 4,000 might participate at the convention, and that it’s better to have a higher number of people participate in the process. Sorry, but those dogs won’t hunt. First, the bylaws are written and changed by the Central Committee. They certainly could have amended the bylaws to allow the Central Committee to vote on endorsements. This was a choice, not something set in stone. Secondly, either way it makes no sense that only the members of the appointed “star chamber” nominating committee will have access to the candidates’ responses to the questionnaires and be able to view the oral interviews. Under this terribly flawed process, it doesn’t matter if it’s the 400 members of the Central Committee or the 4,000 convention delegates. None of them will be casting a fully INFORMED vote. If you’d like to weigh in on this matter, you can send an email to the Nevada GOP by using the party’s online form at https://nevadagop.org/contact or call the party directly at (702) 586-2000. RINO Hunt ‘22 Nevada Assemblyman P.K. O’Neill (R-Carson City) told Megan Barth of the Nevada Globe that Democrats didn’t use the revenue from the largest tax hike in state history – which he voted for in 2015 – for education. As such, he now says: “I regret my vote after seeing what happened to it.” Sorry, Charlie. I ain’t buying it. First, it doesn’t matter whether the Dems used the money the way they said they would or not. The tax hike would have been just as bad if they’d flushed that money down the education rathole as intended. More money won’t fix what’s wrong with our government schools in Nevada. Secondly, if Assemblyman O’Neill truly “regrets my vote,” then why does he still refuse to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge promising to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes”? Don’t listen to what he *says*. Watch what he does. BTW, O’Neill’s primary opponent, Gary Schmidt, HAS signed the Pledge. FAMOUS LAST WORDS “Take over your local GOP – that’s when change starts.” – Steve BannonSo if you’re on the left and didn’t call out the bad actions of Mad Max – or worse, the violent actions of Antifa and Black Lies Matter rioters and looters during the “summer of love” in 2020 – I really don’t give a damn if your nose is bent out of shape over a verbal tongue lashing in a one-minute confrontation with a dictatorial politician at a Mexican restaurant. Get bent. Laxalt Laxative Donald Trump has endorsed Adam Laxalt in Nevada’s U.S. Senate race. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell openly opposes Trump. McConnell supports Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger – the only “Republicans” willingly serving on the January 6 committee witch-hunt. McConnell has endorsed Laxalt. Laxalt supports keeping McConnell as GOP leader. Make it make sense. Fair question though: Where does Laxalt’s opponent, Capt. Sam Brown, stand on retaining McConnell as leader if he’s elected next November? Election ’22 Update When RINO Nevada State Sen. Ben Kieckhefer resigned his seat to take an appointment by Gov. Sisolak last year, incumbent Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner (R) was told by the Washoe County Commission she wouldn’t be appointed to fill the vacancy because she was already running for the seat; that that would give her an unfair advantage in this year’s election. So they appointed a guy name Don Tatro – who promised not to run for the seat and enjoy the same unfair advantage. Then, like a typical politician, he broke his word and announced he was running for the seat this year anyway. That alone is enough reason to oppose him. More About that Flawed Nevada GOP Endorsement Process Last week I wrote critically about how the Nevada GOP was once again messing up its pre-primary endorsement process. If you missed it,
