Brnovich is Running for the U.S. Senate and the Left is Terrified

Published

on

There are generally three types of politicians. The first is the AOC type, always saying outrageous things that generate attention by riling up the base, but they never get much accomplished other than raising money for themselves. The second consists of those who get into office and then proceed to compromise with the other side, the John Kasich types. The third group is those who actually get a lot done in line with their principles, usually quietly so they can get more done without being noticed. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is the third type

 

For the first six years he served in that office, he quietly plodded away, forging victories for freedom, the Constitution and conservative principles. But within the past year, the left finally took notice, and now that he is running for U.S. Senate, they have made him a target. The Arizona Republic runs nearly daily attacks on him. It’s become a joke that the editors and reporters there sit around every morning discussing who is going to write the latest hit piece on him and what it will cover.

He’s been endorsed by Mark Levin, who told him “You’ve got guts.” Sean Hannity has all but endorsed him, frequently inviting him on his show now that the left has put a target on his back. He has enough name recognition that he can beat Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Kelly, who the MSM has labeled one of the five most vulnerable Democratic senators in Congress.

 

The level of principled work Brnovich has done while in office is staggering. He has four lawsuits already  — yes four, and he’s leading on them —  against the Biden administration over illegal immigration. He defended two of Arizona’s election integrity laws all the way to the Supreme Court and won earlier this year, in Brnovich v. DNC. He took on the Maricopa County Supervisors multiple times in their efforts to thwart a ballot audit of the 2020 election, standing firm behind the Senate Republicans. 

 

He was the first person in the country to sue Biden over his vaccine mandate for businesses of 100 employees or more, and followed up with a letter he wrote with other attorneys general. He and several other attorneys general sued Biden over an executive order regarding the “social cost of carbon,” which essentially sneaks in the Green New Deal without going through Congress. 

 

He’s sued big tech, filed a brief in a lawsuit against Gov. Doug Ducey’s COVID-19 restrictions and issued an opinion stating that churches have the right to remain open during COVID-19. He testified at an IRS hearing in support of a rule that Trump eventually adopted, prohibiting the IRS from possessing nonprofit donor information. 

 

He filed an amicus curiae brief with the Supreme Court supporting David Daleiden, who is being wrongfully prosecuted for exposing Planned Parenthood. He filed another one with the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, defending Mississippi’s 15-week ban on abortion, going further than many did, calling to overturn Roe v. Wade

 

He led an amicus curiae brief with other attorneys general at the Supreme Court in the case New York Rifle and Pistol v. Corlette, which challenges New York’s law that only allows gun ownership for good cause. Gun experts say this case could be bigger than District of Columbia v. Heller.  He led a successful amicus curiae brief at the Ninth Circuit opposing California’s ban on high-capacity magazines. He submitted two comments opposing Biden’s ATF rules that go after ghost guns and make it more difficult for the handicapped to obtain braces to use with guns. 

 

He sued the Biden administration over a requirement in The American Rescue Plan Act which prohibits states from lowering taxes for four years. He led an amicus curiae brief at the Supreme Court supporting Americans for Prosperity, which successfully got a California statute requiring disclosure of the identities of donors who give more than $5,000 to a charity struck down. 

Along with other attorneys general, he sued Biden over a move to extend federal antidiscrimination laws to transgenders, which affects which bathrooms they use and sports they participate in.

 

Locally, he threatened to sue the City of Tucson over its vaccine mandate and so they dropped it. He sued ASU over giving a sweetheart deal to a hotel so it could avoid paying property taxes. He filed an amicus curiae brief in a successful lawsuit filed by The Goldwater Institute against the city of Peoria over violating the Arizona Constitution’s gift clause by giving handouts to a private university.

 

There is a long list of items he is defending, such as Arizona’s new law banning aborting babies solely because they have disabilities. He’s defended in court Arizona’s ban on critical race theory and mandatory masks in schools, He defended Arizona’s law banning the investment of taxpayer dollars in companies that boycott Israel, and filed an amicus curiae brief in support of Arkansas’s similar law. 

 

Brnovich is up against two billionaires trying to buy the election in the primary. One is Fortune 500 CEO Jim Lamon, who has no record to speak of. He’s come under criticism for accepting COVID-19 relief funds, although after being publicly outed he returned them. 

 

Out-of-state Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel is funding one of his employees, Blake Masters, $10 million to run. Masters, who also has no record in politics, has attempted to depict Brnovich with the unfounded claim of not being aligned with Trump enough, but Thiel is also funding never Trumper (until he started running) J.D. Vance for Senate in Ohio with $10 million. $10 million is the most money ever contributed by someone to a Senate race. 

 

Brnovich isn’t getting endorsements from police and firefighter unions because he used to head up the Goldwater Institute’s Center for Constitutional Governance, which frequently sued unions. But Republicans know his record, and a recent poll showed him double digits ahead of his opponents. Democrats are terrified, because this is an actual conservative with a record, not just RINO talk.

Zero Wins and Eleven Losses – It’s Time to Replace Kevin McCarthy

Steve Scalice and Jim Jordan are the front runners… if they will do it.

Kevin McCarthy is now 0 and 11 in his quest to become the next Speaker of the House. It is time for him to give up. This is the way politics works. Some people say that the 20 people who are against him should cave, but that’s not the way it works. We live in a representative democratic republic. They have every right to determine who they want to have as the Speaker of the House. The fact is that McCarthy cannot get 218 votes. That’s just the way it is. But I can guarantee you that somebody in the House of Representatives could get to 218 votes. It’s time to find that person. Republicans LOVED it when Manchin and Sinema went against the Democrats out of principle, but now they have a problem when Republican House members do the same. The front runners to replace McCarthy are Steve Scalise from Louisiana and Jim Jordan from Ohio. PolitiCrossing founder, Chris Widener discusses the speaker of the house situation.

Finding A Way Forward

Published

on

OK, Kevin McCarthy may not become the Speaker of the House. The GOP opposition has made it clear a number of times that they do not feel he has demonstrated the skill or the will to truly do deliver on the conservative vision promised. In future roll calls, will the number who voted for McCarthy begin to desert him? Will some stay the course or merely vote present? Will Kevin McCarthy keep holding on or will he eventually throw in the towel and withdraw his name rather than further divide the party and hold back the passage of critical legislation and important investigations.

If this continues, more names need to be considered. Since you don’t have to be an elected representative to be House Speaker, let’s get creative to help us find a way to move forward. Here are some options that Republicans may at some point be ready to support:

Consider going with experience. House Speaker Newt Gingrich knows how to lead and did so at a critical time in our history. He was able to work with Democrat President Bill Clinton. That is the challenge we face now. Gingrich is healthy and respected. If willing, he would be a good choice to bring forward.

They might consider tapping a woman respected by all, Condoleezza Rice. The former Secretary of State left the political field of battle to serve America in different ways. She doesn’t need this job but has the respect of the party faithful if willing to serve. If days go by and no one wins the day for weeks, someone ought to give her a call.

If it continues, maybe McCarthy will free up a proven fighter, Jim Jordon, to take the job. He is respected and has been loyal in supporting Kevin McCarthy and, more importantly, he has the critical vision and passion for conservative issues that must win the day. He has the support of many of those who refuse to vote for McCarthy. He is humble, an able communicator on conservative issues, and will not compromise on his vision for a free America.

When they can’t find a replacement for Pope who secures enough votes, they go beyond closed doors and bring up people until someone wins the day and they send up the right smoke! It’s time for our party to go behind closed doors and start looking at options for a leader they can support. Kevin McCarthy has clearly shown that he cannot even unite the party around his leadership. That is a bad sign in a world where many party faithful have lost hope in the party’s ability to stand strong for what they have promised to deliver.
