The Truth Behind the “Women’s March”

By Ryan S. Walters

Sparks flew Sunday night, and into Monday, after Senator Chris McDaniel posted his thoughts on the national “Women’s March” on his Facebook page.

Senator McDaniel wrote:

“So a group of unhappy liberal women marched in Washington DC. We shouldn’t be surprised; almost all liberal women are unhappy. Perhaps there’s a correlation.

Nevertheless, I’m fascinated to see them exercise their First Amendment rights (however objectionable the message).

But I do have a question: if they can afford all those piercings, tattoos, body paintings, signs, and plane tickets, then why do they want us to pay for their birth control?”

Trump Courts the Establishment, Some Conservatives Feel Betrayed

By Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

Since his improbable victory over Hillary Clinton to claim the presidency, Donald Trump has begun the process of releasing the names of those he is appointing to top positions in his administration. Political insiders have always seen these early announcements as a key to determining the direction the new White House will ultimately take. And so far, as the earliest names were released, opposition is brewing. [Read more…]

Panicked Establishment Already At Work To Save RINO Roger

By Ryan S. Walters | @ryanswalters73

The Republican establishment in Mississippi is panicked and I don’t mean by any perceived threats from the incoming Trump Administration. No it’s more local, more personal, and more frightening than that. Rumors are starting to grow that State Senator Chris McDaniel might just throw his hat into the ring against Senator Roger Wicker in the 2018 midterms and that prospect fills the powers-that-be with dread.

1884 & 2016: Private vs. Public Immorality

By Ryan S. Walters

The 2016 presidential race was shaken up recently with the leak of private audio revealing that Republican nominee Donald Trump said something vulgar 11 years ago as a private citizen in what he thought was a private setting. Trump has since apologized.

The timing of the release of the audio couldn’t have been more suspicious, coming just as more revelations divulged more Clinton corruption. Wikileaks released thousands of emails from Clinton aide John Podesta that included snippets of some of Hillary’s secret Wall Street speeches and the illegal campaign coordination with a Super PAC, while a Gucifer disclosure exposed the existence of a Clinton Foundation “pay for play” folder.

Yet the big political talk centered not on Hillary’s corruption – not even her statement in a speech to a foreign bank that she desired “open trade and open borders” throughout the Western Hemisphere – but on Trump’s verbal gaffe, with major Republican leaders cancelling campaign events, while others are calling on the presidential nominee to leave the race in favor of Mike Pence.

As a historian I can tell you we’ve seen this same song and dance before, in the 1884 presidential campaign that turned out to be one of the nastiest on record. That race, like this one, featured two Northern candidates, including a New Yorker, Governor Grover Cleveland, who faced off against James G. Blaine from Maine, a former Speaker of the House, US Senator, and Secretary of State. [Read more…]

McDaniel vs. Cochran 2014: Why Charlie Mitchell Gets It Wrong

By Ryan S. Walters

Charlie Mitchell is the assistant dean, and assistant professor, of the Meek School of Journalism and New Media at12235042_1026092310787990_1474717039908903470_n Ole Miss, which means, presumably, that he knows something about a journalist’s trade, though we can’t say the same about his knowledge of politics.

In his column today, Mitchell seeks to figure out Donald Trump’s appeal. This election is about discontent, he writes, and people are unhappy. But why? Because “America has become a nation of makers and takers. They and Trump are the makers. Everyone else is a leech.” These people are angry about being “forced to pay taxes to house and feed those who can’t or won’t work.”

Trump supporters don’t see him “as a genius,” he writes. “They don’t care about his position on issues…. They don’t care what he says or who he offends. He’s not an insider, and that’s all that matters.” [Read more…]

McDaniel: Trump’s Position on Eminent Domain is Troubling

By Senator Chris McDaniel

Donald Trump has proven to be a political game changer.  His willingness to take on the establishment is inspiring.  Along with millions of others, he has garnered my attention.  He endorsed me in my race for Senate, and I remain grateful for his support.eminent-domain

But his continued insistence on defending the abusive use of eminent domain should concern all who value the Constitution.

In writing this, I know I stand to offend many of my supporters.  But I write this for them.  My oath is to the Constitution, so remaining silent in the face of its violation would be an indictment against everything we have fought to achieve.  Even if it hurts me politically, I must defend it and our civil liberties, or else I become what we have struggled to vanquish.
