Republican congress-critters who are still on the platform fretting over whether or not to jump on the Trump Train for the 2018 election cycle might want to consider not only Trump’s 4-0 string of wins in special elections this year, but, according to a report in Breitbart this week…
“The Republican National Committee (RNC) raised a record $10.8 million in May, while the Democratic Party had its worst May since 2003, raising just $4.29 million.”
Time to get with the program, folks. How?
First, Trump ain’t gonna stop tweeting…and he shouldn’t. So shut up about Trump tweeting.
Secondly, stop talking about this BS “Russian collusion” crud and re-start the investigations into Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. And toss in Eric Holder and the rest of the Obama Gang for good measure.
Thirdly, stop the public in-fighting over ObamaCare repeal. Lock yourselves in a room at Dick Cheney’s “undisclosed location” and stay there until you have the votes needed to pass *whatever* without a single Democrat vote that you’re never going to get. Just shut up and “git ‘er done.”
Fourthly, do the exact same thing with tax reform. And immigration reform. And education reform. And NAFTA reform. Rinse, lather, repeat. For once in your miserable political lives, don’t blow this opportunity!

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
Democrat Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak announced on Thursday that he’s running for governor. I like Steve. I believe, as Democrats go, he’s a moderate. We could do much worse – like back in 2006 when the Democrat candidate was the annoying, uber-liberal Dina Titus. But here’s the thing…
If elected governor, most of those rabidly liberal, anti-business bills passed by the Democrat majority in the 2017 Legislature would be signed instead of vetoed. Government appointees to the executive branch would be almost entirely Democrats. Judicial appointments for vacancies would be Democrats. And ESAs (Education Savings Accounts) would move from life support to the morgue.
A timeshare salesman named Steve Cloobeck is making rumblings of a run in the Democrat primary, but he wouldn’t have a prayer against Sisolak - even if he offered two free tickets to Disneyland just for attending the primary election (no obligation to buy!).
The only credible challenge to Sisolak would seem to be liberal fellow county commissioner Chris Giunchigliani, who clearly would run to the far left of Sisolak – much like how now-state Sen. Pat Spearman ran to the left of and defeated then-Sen. John Lee in the 2012 Democrat primary.
For Nevada conservatives, this is gonna sound really, really weird…but we need to support and encourage Chris G to make this run. She would be a far weaker candidate in the general election statewide than Sisolak – just like how Sharron Angle was a far weaker general election GOP candidate for U.S. Senate than Sue Lowden in 2010.
Run Chris, run!
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“One key (health insurance) vote is Nevada Sen. Dean Heller. His seat is one of the few in the upper chamber that Democrats believe they can flip in 2018, and he has faced a constant barrage of attacks from leftist operatives, particularly over the Medicaid issue. Sen. Heller has long argued for the repeal of Obamacare. He badly miscalculates, and risks alienating his core supporters, if he believes that any capitulation on health care will quiet the progressive mob.” – Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial, 6/23/17
