“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” —John Adams
Who is Paul Nehlen?
So, just who is challenger Paul Nehlen? Well, he’s a throwback to a true believer in America’s greatness and her Constitution and Declaration of Independence. And he’s running for Congress in Wisconsin’s 1st District primary election on August 9th, 2016, against none other than Speaker Paul Ryan. According to Red State Watcher, Paul Nehlen has now taken the lead over Ryan with 47% to 41%!
Paul Nehlen campaigned and voted for Paul Ryan, but now he is challenging Ryan in Wisconsin’s primary. Why? Because like so many other neo-conservative globalists, Ryan was all talk and all promises, but his actions belied his words. He betrayed his constituents. Big time!
Hankerson Campaigns for Nehlen and Trump
The Northeast Florida Regional Director for the Donald Trump for President campaign is Derek Boyd Hankerson. Hankerson, who is of Gullah Geechee heritage, is an African-American documentary filmmaker, author, and historian in addition to his political background. He’s also the Get Out The Vote (GOTV) Director for Wisconsin congressional candidate, Paul Nehlen.
Nehlen’s Policies and Beliefs
I recently had the opportunity to speak to Paul, and I asked him if he would answer some questions for me. We had a great conversation, and then I sent him the following questions. His answers are telling, and we have them in print to hold his feet to the fire. It is my belief that we need hundreds more Paul Nehlen’s in Congress.
Here are my questions and Paul’s answers. Please donate to his campaign and help him to oust Paul Ryan.
• Have you studied the Constitution and Declaration of Independence?
Yes, I have. There are clearly words written in those documents, that if strictly adhered to, would keep this nation on a straight and narrow path towards prosperity and free from tyranny.
Unfortunately, many of our elected officials believe that they know better than those they were hired to represent, and better than the Framers of both documents. Paul Ryan certainly falls into the group of elected officials who thinks he knows better than we do.
• Where do you stand on the Second Amendment…any restrictions? How about registration? How about CC permits?
I am a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment. It was not written for hunting geese or deer. It was written to ensure we have the ability to defend our freedom. More on my thoughts about the 2nd Amendment here.
• How about the 4th Amendment? The illegal searches and seizures are totally out of control. (Patriot Act, NDAA, etc.) [Link]
Free people are only free if they can live their lives without government intrusion. The 4th Amendment has been gutted with the Patriot Act, and NDAA has flipped Liberty on her head. Our backyard is a battlefield because politicians and political correctness have given many spinal laryngitis – not enough backbone to say the obvious – Islam is the root cause of global terrorism. Narco-terrorists are just as bad.
Dead is dead. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bullet from ISIS or a $5 heroin pill.
• Where do you stand on charters, vouchers and choice?
I am for abolishing the US Department of education and any Federal tax dollars for education. This is a local issue. Federal education bureaucrats are a redundant layer of unnecessary spending. I do not want my federal taxes paying for an Islamic school. However, if I want to support a local Christian school, it should be available to students who will say the Pledge of Allegiance and recite the Lord’s Prayer.
• Are you for a Constitutional Convention, a Convention of States, or a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA)?
I am not for a CC or COS. It is a Pandora’s box that doesn’t need opening. We need an insurgency of upstanding men and women to unseat career politicians across the country.
We tax too much and spend too much. In addition to what this article lays out I would add:
The 10th amendment is pretty clear. The states are sovereign.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
We shouldn’t send any tax revenue to Washington where it is essentially money-laundered by federal bureaucrats. Each state participating in un-enumerated federal programs is subsequently extorted by the Federal government to grow the Leviathan.
This is the Progressive / Marxist / Communist agenda unfolding before our eyes (reference The Naked Communist). States that fail their citizenry should suffer the consequences of their voting preferences. Those that choose well will have life, liberty, and property.
The Puerto Rico bailout was a swindle and must be undone before more states like Connecticut and Illinois try it.
• How do you feel about women in the military (in combat)?
I’m not supportive of women in combat, as studies have shown a woman cannot carry a fallen male soldier, and other physical attributes related to strength.
• Your position on homosexuals/transgenders in the military…
It’s God’s role to judge. I’m supposed to love everyone without condoning behaviors that God has clearly said are unacceptable.
The government has no place in people’s bedrooms. That’s God’s domain.
That said, I do not believe that I should have to alter my relationship with God to accommodate Man. If my conscience says I don’t agree with someone, I can love them and pray for them without being disagreeable.
• Your position on the Middle East wars
The U.S. should have the strongest military in the world. We should annihilate any who attack us and let them rebuild themselves.
We should most definitely not interject ourselves into Islamic civil wars.
Paul Ryan has abdicated his unique role as Speaker of the house in two key ways and should vacate the Speaker’s chair:
1. Failure to challenge Obama’s war making (that is a unique role for Congress – the Framer’s never intended a POTUS could wage war without consent from Congress)
2. Failure to bring debate to the floor on an AUMF (Authorization on Use for Military Force) – and he has been asked in writing twice now to do so.
• Where do you stand on foreign aid?
We should only aid our allies in securing Liberty and safety here at home. I see no reason for our Veterans and active duty service members to suffer sub-standard care and equipment when we dole out billions to those that would do us harm.
• How would you secure our borders?
I would build a wall along many sections of the border and where we need river access for livestock ranching would put increased levels of armed security as in my video where Sheriff West in Hudspeth County Texas said “Give me 75 men and 24 hours and I can secure Hudspeth County”, which has a 100-mile border with Mexico.
• What is your stance on illegal aliens?
Enforce existing immigration law. There is a legal path to citizenship now. Use it.
• What is your stance on Muslim refugees?
We should not take any Muslim refugees. Sharia law is incompatible with The U.S. Constitution and you cannot separate sharia from Islam. We should pray for Muslims to find Jesus Christ.
• Where do you stand on trade? NAFTA to TPP, and fast tracking
TPP is NAFTA on steroids. You can read my whole take on it in Paul Ryans 7 Deadly Sins – TPP.
• Where do you stand on healthcare (Obama Care)?
• Are you fully pro-life?
I am fully pro-life. I would not have funded planned parenthood as Speaker Ryan did. He should not have funded it in the omnibus and should have instead passed a budget that did not include PP funding. Omnibus isn’t a budget. Omnibus is a pile of money.
• What is your stance on H1B Visas?
The H-1B visa program is a metastasized cancer that is spreading across this country.
It was never designed to be utilized the way big businesses have corrupted it.
Companies like Abbott Labs, Intel, New York Life, etc., are replacing American workers with less-skilled H-1B visa holders and the H-1B visa holders are treated like indentured servants. Didn’t we fight a war against slavery in this country?
• What do you do for a living?
I’m the Senior Vice President of Operations for a water filtration and UV disinfection manufacturing company. We were purchased in April of this year by Evoqua, and I have a runout contract with them through the end of October to transfer technology and continue to publish US patents – the fifth of which will be active in two weeks.
• What faith are you?
I’m a Christian. God picked an imperfect man to challenge Speaker Ryan.
Vote for Nehlen
It is obvious that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan needs to be replaced. It would be wonderful to see another defeat of the incumbent as we saw with Dave Brat when he ousted Eric Cantor. With the latest polls, Paul Nehlen now leads Speaker Ryan by 47% to 41%. Let’s help him oust Ryan!
Here are the 10 things Paul Nehlen says he’ll do within the 60 days after he’s elected. Congress has, at best, a 5% to 9% approval rating. If we elect more men and women like Paul Nehlen, the ratings will definitely improve. I believe this man will honor the oath of office, and it is why I support him.
Please do all you can to promote Mr. Nehlen’s efforts to unseat Paul Ryan in the August 9th Wisconsin primary. Donations can be made through his website, and an address is included should you wish to send a check.
