The Gun Bill That Is Going Through Congress Could Significantly Increase The Number Of Americans Banned From Buying Guns

When news that a “concealed-carry reciprocity law” had been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, gun owners all over the nation rejoiced.  But what most people didn’t realize is that there had been a last minute change to the bill that could substantially increase the number of Americans that are banned from buying guns.  This poison pill completely ruins the bill, and it must be voted down.  What we need is a clean “concealed-carry reciprocity bill” that does not include “Fix-NICS” in it.

Amazing Phenomenon: Trump And Israel Are Linked By The Number 7 Over And Over Again

On Wednesday, President Trump announced that the United States is formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and would begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy to the holy city.  This move sent shockwaves around the world, and it is likely that we could see widespread violence erupt in the Middle East.  But what most people don’t realize is that the timing of this announcement was extremely significant.  As you will see below, this came on the exact date on the Hebrew calendar when the Partition Plan for Palestine was adopted 70 years ago, and it is yet another example of how Trump and Israel are linked by the number “7” over and over again.

California Is Being Sued Because So Few Of Their Public School Children Can Read

At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math.  How is that even possible?  Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get.  At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing.  This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read… (Read More...)

Exposing The Tricks Of The Professional Politicians

Have you ever sat through a very long political speech and realized at the end of it that nothing of any real substance was said the entire time?  This is what professional politicians have been trained to do.  They have been trained to sound good without every really getting very specific about anything.  I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district, and I could be just like the other professional politicians if I wanted to be, because I know all of their tricks.  But I would never do that, because I believe that we need to get rid of the corrupt career politicians that are absolutely ruining this country.

Help! Here Is What We Need In Order For Our Campaign For Congress To Be Successful, And It Is Going To Take All Of Us

When I first started running for Congress, I would often use the phrase “my campaign”, but I have completely removed that term from my vocabulary.  What I have come to realize is that this must be “our campaign”, because it would literally be impossible for me to win if I tried to do this on my own.  Last week we launched our very first “money bomb”, and it got off to a great start, but giving has dwindled down to almost nothing over Thanksgiving weekend.  We desperately need your help, because if we stay at the current pace there is no way that we are going to meet our top goal.  If you would like to help make this “money bomb” a success, you can do so right here(Read More...)

Why Congressman Joe Barton Must Resign Immediately

I wish that I had never seen the nude photo of U.S. Representative Joe Barton that is circulating around the Internet like wildfire.  It is a photo that he took of himself and sent to a woman that he was not married to, and even though his private area is censored in the photo, it is still one of the most horrifying things that I have ever seen.  I am not going to share that photo in this article, and I very highly suggest that you do not go looking for it.  Joe Barton has already admitted that he took this photo of himself, and this type of behavior is completely unacceptable for a sitting member of Congress.  Barton must resign, and he must resign immediately.

Faces Of Evil: Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and Glenn Thrush All Face New Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Have we entered a time when justice will begin to prevail in America?  For decades, celebrities, politicians and those in other positions of power have been engaging in very serious sexual misconduct, and victims have felt powerless to do anything about it.  But now thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the dam appears to be breaking and all of a sudden a flood of allegations is coming out.  On Monday, we learned of brand new accusations against Bill Clinton, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and New York Times journalist Glenn Thrush.

Since 1997, 264 Cases Of Sexual Harassment In Congress Have Been Settled For A Total Of $17,250,854

We finally have the official numbers, and they aren’t pretty. Reid Wilson, a correspondent for the Hill, has posted to Twitter a year by year breakdown of sexual harassment settlements and awards that he received from the Congressional Office of Compliance.  I went ahead and added up each column, and what I discovered is that 264 cases of sexual harassment in Congress have been settled since 1997, and the total amount awarded in those settlements comes to a grand total of $17,250,854.

Please Contribute To The 2017 Michael Snyder For Congress Money Bomb

Wouldn’t it be great if Congress was absolutely packed with strong constitutional conservatives that consistently fought for true conservative values? It has been said that our government is a reflection of who we are as a people, and the only way that we are going to take our government back is if we fight for it. I have talked to so many conservatives that are sick and tired of being betrayed by “Republicans in name only” over and over again, but the only way that we are going to break this cycle is if good people start running and if we get behind them. Personally, I am in a very tight race in Idaho’s first congressional district, and the only way that I can win is if it is a total team effort. There is no way that I can do this alone, and fortunately we have had some absolutely extraordinary people get involved in the campaign as volunteers. But if you don’t have the time to serve as a volunteer, you can still contribute to the campaign in other ways. Today we are launching our “2016 Money Bomb”, and the deadline for participating is November 30th. If you would like to donate, you can do so here(Read More...)
