Congressman King

I have no love for Rep Steve King. As the national co-chair for the Cruz presidential campaign in 2016 his actions against candidate Donald Trump and the other candidates during the Iowa Caucus has earned Mr. King permanent scorn. Thankfully he did not remain in the Leftist neverTrump camp after the election was won. And he has became a strong outspoken supporter of the Trump Administration. But I do not like Rep King.

Rep King has a lot of faults but being a racist isn’t one of them. This is part of the ongoing witch hunt against the President, his allies, and his supporters and base. Rep King’s remarks were taken out of context and skewed to fit a narrative of lies by the Left.

Unfortunately many otherwise good Republicans have fallen for this deadly trap. And the Left is salivating at the proverbial blood in the water.

Rep Steve King was speaking about how the Left labels its opponents as racists which makes things very difficult to defend. And in many cases the label is unfounded and unjust.

Rep King continued his talk and wondered how the term “Western Civilization” became an offensive term. After all he, and many others myself included, have sat through hours of classroom lectures on the merits of Western Civilization and all that it achieved.

These lines when taken out of context and the emphasis removed from the verbal speech can sound damning indeed. And the comment about taking a class is overlooked and glossed over. No one takes ore teaches a class on merits of racism. That is absurd.

This entire scandal is a fraud. The Governor of Iowa and our two Senators need to issue an immediate apology to Rep Steve King. And the rest of Congress needs to follow. Rep King’s positions on committees should be reinstated at once and any disciplinary actions should be dropped.

The longer this continues the worse it will backfire on the Left that started it and on any Republican that goes along with it.

Lack of Unity

It’s been a few days and I’ve been thinking about what Governor Kim Reynolds said earlier this week. If you haven’t been keeping up the Governor suggested that Iowa’s only Republican Congressman should consider leaving politics. This was not a good idea.

Iowa’s only Republican Congressman is the 4th district representative, Steve King. He is hated by the Left and RINO’s alike. I personally do not like him. It’s not his politics or the lies the Left tells about him. It’s his personality.

Also I am not in the 4th district. But if I was, I would have voted for Steve King.

Governor Reynolds needs to learn she cannot attack other Republicans. Calling out the RINO’s is perfectly acceptable but not attacks on other Republicans who are patriots and defenders of the Republic.

This action is a bad mark against the Governor. It may very well lead to a Primary vote leading up to the 2022 election cycle. This could be her only true term as the Governor of Iowa.

Life is Heartbeat to Heartbeat

On Thursday May 4th 2018 history was made in the State of Iowa. For the first time since 1973 the unborn have a fighting chance for life.

Around 3 o’clock in the afternoon that day Governor Kim Reynolds was in agreement with the Iowa Assembly when they determined that human life started with a heartbeat. Senate File 359 landed on her desk after it has passed both the Iowa House and Iowa Senate. The Governor then signed the Fetal Heartbeat Bill into law.

At the Governor’s desk was a large crowd of children, parents, and supporters of Life. Even before Governor Reynolds signed the bill making it part of Iowa Law, she knew it would be met with opposition and legal action, by those who seek the death of the unborn for profit and personal gain. Planned Parenthood of Iowa had already threatened the Governor that she would be sued if she signed the Fetal Heartbeat Bill into law.

Two dozen protesters were outside of the Governor’s office at the time of the signing. It has yet to be determined if these people were even from Iowa or if any of them were from outside the state. Here to protest where there was little to no opposition.

Governor Kim Reynolds is a devout believer in the Word of God. She is a champion of Life. And despite the terrible odds that unelected black robed tyrants will in all likely hood prevent this law from taking effect on July 1st. She signed it anyway.

For this reason alone she has my deepest respect. And my continued support and vote for re-election this fall. This champion must remain the Governor of the great State of Iowa for the next 4 years.
