While every Clickservative is focused solely on Comey and Russia, we stand at a crossroads on so many issues. From the debt ceiling, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and foreign policy opportunities to Israel policy, budget betrayals, immigration, judicial reform – there is no time to be wasted on nonsense. Conservatives can raise their voices and demand change while the president is on the fence, and we can seize these amazing opportunities. Or we can get distracted by nonsense and watch the shallow-state losers in this administration lead the president astray on every critical issue. The choice is ours.
Specifically, in this episode of “The Conservative Conscience,” we delve into three issues in-depth – Dodd-Frank repeal, the debt ceiling, and how to use the Arab schism between Qatar, Iran, and the Muslim Brotherhood to our advantage.
As of now, we are getting all the liabilities of cozying up to the Saudis (getting ensnared in Yemen, getting caught in Syria, the disastrous arms deal, throwing Israel under the bus), but not getting the benefits (going after the Muslim Brotherhood, abrogating the Iran deal, and stopping fighting for Iran in Iraq). This is the difference between allying with one of your enemies against another (bad) and playing them both against each other for our benefit (good).
The lesson from all of this is that true conservatives have so much to talk about and run on in a principled and resonate fashion. We don’t need to focus on the media or what the media is focusing on all day. And if conservatives would actually give such advice to the president, it would have a self-fulfilling effect of bailing him out of the media’s narratives and changing the discussion to substance over style, which always benefits our side.
- Republicans have nothing to run on but the media
- Secretary Kelly says he won’t deport “Dreamers”!
- The moral case for a cool-off of immigration from the Middle East
- The importance of the debt ceiling and why Trump must reverse course, show leadership
- The courts are destroying Republican electoral viability, and nobody is paying attention
- The importance of repealing Dodd-Frank
