The most important gubernatorial primary in the country takes place on Tuesday, August 7th, right in the middle American heartland. When Trump tapped Sam Brownback to convert the heathens, then-lieutenant governor Jeff Colyer inherited the spot.
Colyer is an open borders cuck. He’s in the farm lobby’s back pocket. Under Sebelius, Brownback, and now Colyer, Kansas has become the Midwestern state that coddles invaders more than any other:
That’s Colyer on the left, his mushroom button pressed tightly between his thighs. Here’s a side-by-side of Colyer and Kobach. ID the alpha:
If memory serves, Brownback earned a lifetime grade of D- from NumbersUSA, though his career grade is now unavailable. It was archived in 2002, though, at about the midway point of his congressional career. It was an abysmal 18% at the time. By comparison, John McCain earns a lifetime score of 27%. Yes, Brownback is even worse than McCain on the National Question, and so is Colyer.
Colyer, with the same nation-wrecking combination of aw-shucks religiously-influenced pathological altruism and plaid shirt pocket stuffed with agricultural lobby dollars as Brownback, has continued in the latter’s footsteps. His campaign site doesn’t mention immigration at all. The closest we get is this phrase:
We are going to fight to ensure our agriculture producers have the chance to grow their businesses
We know what that means–door’s wide open, muchachos!
Strong borders are essential to our nation and to our State. They are essential to fighting terrorism, essential to fighting crime, and essential to protecting American workers. And the only way to combat a problem as severe as a lawless immigration system is to have action at both the federal and the state level.
Unfortunately, Kansas has become the sanctuary state of the Midwest. We are the only state in the 5-state area that has done nothing to discourage illegal immigration.
This hurts Kansas taxpayers. This puts Kansans’ jobs at risk. And it puts Kansans’ lives at risk. We can solve this problem in Kansas. But it takes leadership and political will. I’ll get the job done.
Not so much as even a verbal sop to invaders or their enablers about “comprehensive reform”, “compassion”, or “making the process fair”. Kobach, who owns 160 acres of farmland, even said at the debate that farmers are going to have to be okay with making less on their crops for the good of the MAGA agenda, both trade and immigration.
My first encounter with Kobach was in the mid-2000s when he debated the late Richard Nadler on… immigration. Nadler was one of those charlatans selling the Rovian lies about Hispanics being natural conservatives, the kind of cuckservatives who were everywhere in the Bush years.
Kobach was fighting this fight long before it was a cause celebre on the mainstream American right. Restrictionism is not something he’s just glomming onto now because it’s popular to do so. He was the primary author of Arizona’s SB 1070 in 2010, something that led the $PLC to characterize Kobach as a “hate group lawyer”.
This race has ramifications extending well beyond Kansas. The Trump administration is backing Kobach. Next week Don Jr. will be dispatched for a fundraiser in Wichita. This despite the fact that the state’s Republican party apparatus favors Colyer.
If the Trump-backed insurgent running on a MAGA agenda overthrows Cuckservatism, Inc’s marionette, it’ll be an indication that the revolution is alive and well. If Colyer staves off the challenger, it’ll be an indication to Team Trump that the pragmatic course of action is to play nice with the GOPe as it continues to sell the country out.
Incidentally, Kobach’s opposition to the invasion probably isn’t the biggest reason the party establishment despises him. Since being elected secretary of state for Kansas in 2010, he has reduced the office’s budget by $2.4 million, from $7 million when he came in to the $4.6 million it spent last year.
That’s not merely a baseline budgeting faux cut, it’s a real decrease in absolute expenditures. A big part of how he’s done it is by cutting the department’s staff by 25% over the last eight years. When a bureaucrat retires, Kobach doesn’t hire anyone to replace him.
This terrifies the porcine trough-feeders that make up the party establishment. A governor Kobach would not only expose how little the vast majority of government employees do, he’d phase out many of their sinecures through attrition.
The primary is going to be a close one. PredictIt currently handicaps it at 51%-49% in Kobach’s very marginal favor. For the less than 1% of the blog’s readers who are from Kansas (and registered Republican), get in gear on Tuesday, August 7th.
Everyone else, if you have a contact in Kansas, work it. I’ll never ask for a dime but I am asking for that. Thank you very much for the consideration.
