If Trump is the 'great MAGA king,' I'm a loyal subject

A loyal subject of the ‘great MAGA king’

President Joe Biden dubbed former president Donald Trump “the great MAGA king” and fears Republicans are now embracing an ultra-MAGA agenda. Since I fully embraced the former president’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) rule, I compare myself to a subject who had the opportunity to live under a benevolent, though temperamental, king.

I and fellow subjects thrived under the four-year reign of this king, as we had: border security, respect for law enforcement, victims’ rights greater than criminals’ rights, energy independence, parental rights in education, equal opportunity and meritocracy, and a thriving economy with many jobs and real wage growth.

Sadly, in 2020, a COVID plague hit our land.  This plague, along with a confluence of real and contrived events, led to a hoard from the left overthrowing his reign in 2020.  

His successor is a court jester named Joe Biden.  This new king and his court are causing ruination throughout our land as his rule leads to: open borders, raging inflation, unaffordable gasoline prices, high crime, culture wars and many other maladies currently afflicting us. 

Hopefully, King Biden’s reign will soon end through the success of Republican candidates in the upcoming mid-term and 2024 elections.

Calvert a creature of ‘the swamp’

Ken Calvert has been in Congress for 30 years. He calls himself a “businessman,” but he is a career politician.

He is the ranking member on the Subcommittee on Defense. Guess how much the defense industry donated to his campaign in just 2021-2022? $189,000. That’s right. Talk about not draining the swamp.

He complains about gas prices, but he gets big bucks from big oil.

Oh, and talk about insider dealings: He received $126,300 from lobbyists in one year.

Will Rollins is a former federal prosecutor who will not defend acts of insurrection. It’s time to elect him.
