In a letter to Abigail Adams penned in 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote…
“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then.”
And with that in mind…
I got back to Vegas late last night from doing my Campaign Boot Camp in Norwalk, CT on Saturday. What a GREAT group of conservative candidates and activists…
That’s State Rep. Kim Fiorello, who organized the event along with the Federated Republican Women of Southern Connecticut, sitting to my immediate right. What a bright, shining, conservative rising star!
I honestly think I got more from them than the other way around.
These folks live in a solidly “blue” state — behind enemy lines. But they aren’t giving up. Instead, they’re fighting back like there’s no tomorrow. Which reminds of this slightly altered quote by Coach Jimmy McGinty in the movie “The Replacements” …
“Now (the Democrats have) made a big mistake out there. They haven’t been afraid of you. And they should be. Because you have a powerful weapon working for you: There is no tomorrow for you. And that makes you all VERY DANGEROUS PEOPLE!”
If things under Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats continue as they are, there won’t be a tomorrow for this nation as founded.
And hanging out with Rep. Fiorello and these dedicated folks — who took an entire day out of their lives to join me for this training seminar — has renewed by faith that we can and will prevail… in November and beyond.
Jefferson’s “spirit of resistance” lives. There’s hope. Thank you, Norwalk!

Thieves Should Be Hung from Cranes!
Alas, I came home from Connecticut to find myself a victim of the ongoing Biden crime wave.
I have a small, one-room casita behind my house that I use as my office. And while I was gone, someone broke into it Saturday night and ransacked the place.
Still going through the mess to see what was stolen.
This ongoing crime wave is NOT the fault of the police department. This is the fault of our soft-on-crime court systems which, at best, give thieves a little slap on the wrist. As such, criminals of all stripes know that even if they’re caught there won’t be any real price to pay.
Catch-and-release. Revolving door justice for thieves, vermin and scum.
Judges and district attorneys MUST stop issuing get-out-of-jail-free cards. Soft sentences encourage crime. Stiff penalties encourage deterrence. It’s LONG past time to start throwing the book at ‘em again.
