Watch The Most Controversial Congressional Debate In Idaho History

It isn’t often that you get to see a seasoned politician completely melt down on live television. On Sunday evening, the last debate for the candidates running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district was held, and it was certainly a wild one. In the weeks leading up to the debate, voters all over Idaho had been heatedly debating whether to vote for Michael Snyder or Russ Fulcher all over social media, and both of us were positioned right in the center of the stage. Unfortunately for the Fulcher campaign, Russ delivered an absolutely disastrous performance. When reporter Betsy Russell asked Russ about the Mueller investigation, he responded by saying that “I haven’t even been following that closely”. If that wasn’t bad enough, he followed that up by admitting two more times that he had not been paying attention to the Mueller investigation. Needless to say, jaws dropped open all over the studio as Fulcher dropped this bombshell. The Mueller investigation has been the biggest news story in Congress for over a year, and Russ Fulcher never actually answered Betsy Russell’s question because as he openly confessed, he had not “been following that closely”. How can someone running for Congress not have a basic understanding of the most important issue that Congress has been dealing with? Throughout the debate the differences between Russ and myself were glaringly obvious, and if you have not seen it yet, you can watch the entire congressional debate right here(Read More...)

Why Hillary Clinton Needs To Go To Prison In 2018

In the United States, nobody is supposed to be above the law, and that includes our elected officials.  If top politicians are permitted to break the law over and over again and get away with it, that sends an absolutely terrible message to everyone else in our society, and it threatens the legitimacy of our entire system of justice.  Hillary Clinton has been caught red-handed mishandling classified documents, it appears that she greatly betrayed our nation during the Uranium One deal, evidence has emerged that she has committed gross violations of campaign finance law, and the very deep corruption at the Clinton Foundation is well known.  Hillary Clinton needs to be prosecuted and sent to prison, and as a member of Congress I will do whatever I can to help make that happen.

Our Dec. 31st Federal Fundraising Deadline Is At The End Of The Month, And We Desperately Need A $30,000 December Miracle

December 31st is the most important deadline that our campaign for Congress has faced so far. All over the country people will be watching to see how much money we raised in the fourth quarter, and a good result could mean lots of support and contributions from Republican organizations all over the country. But a bad result would be disastrous. The key will be to show that we raised more money during our second quarter than we did during our first quarter, and right now we are behind that pace. This time of the year people are so preoccupied with holiday preparations, and so many political campaigns go into “hibernation mode” until after the first of the year. But we cannot afford to do that, because what will happen over the next few weeks could be the deciding factor in whether we win or not next May. If we can raise $30,000 by December 31st we will be where we need to be, and if you would like to help you can do so right here(Read More...)

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...)

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...)

The Republican Party Just Got A Major League Wake Up Call

Tuesday night was a major shock for millions of Republicans, but it shouldn’t have been.  I have been warning for months that Democrats were raising lots of money and had more energy and enthusiasm on their side, and it showed.  From coast to coast Republicans got trounced, and if we don’t get our act together we are going to get killed in the 2018 mid-term elections.  Last November, we witnessed the greatest miracle in the history of U.S. politics, and afterwards millions of conservatives promptly went to sleep.  That was a tragic mistake, because we are literally in a battle for the future of America, and at the moment the Democrats have the momentum.

That’s It? That Is All That Mueller Can Come Up With? Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s Scandals Are Being Ignored…

If this is all that Robert Mueller can come up with, he has just wasted enormous amounts of time and money.  On Monday, Paul Manafort and his former business partner Richard Gates were charged with tax evasion, money laundering and being “unregistered agents of the government of Ukraine”.  These charges have nothing to do with Trump’s campaign, and the Trump campaign is not actually mentioned in the indictment at all.  Previously, I explained that once a special counsel is appointed, someone is going to end up getting indicted.  Somebody must be charged with something, because a special counsel always feels the need to justify all of the time, money and energy that has been expended.  But if this is all that Mueller can come up with, that is pretty pathetic.
