USA turning point: Trump as president and Boebert as chief whip – the future as seen by young conservatives


The event hosted by America’s largest conservative student body lasted just four days. But by then, they and the speakers who addressed them managed to cover a tremendous amount of ground and give voice to many dreams of what they would like the future to look like.

Donald Trump as Speaker of the House of Representatives just to see Nancy Pelosi’s face as he takes the hammer from her? Why not.

Lauren Boebert, carrying her Glock semi-automatic pistol as her chief whip? Sure.

And what about Kayleigh McEnany returning to the White House as a press secretary? They would love it.

But while there was a lot of “fake media” bashing at the Turning Point America event in Phoenix, Arizona, a reporter who tried to pose a simple question to Kyle Rittenhouse, hailed as a “hero for millions “, was not welcome. He was blocked off by security guards and had his credentials stripped after he tried to ask the 18-year-old why he was supporting Black Lives Matter, as he had previously claimed.

Turning Point America was founded by activist Charlie Kirk and regularly hosts events to spread its message of “freedom, free markets and limited government”.

This summer, Trump himself addressed an event, also in Arizona, describing the so-called Green New Deal proposal to take fossil fuels out of America from “*** new green bulls.” When he spoke in 2019, while still president, he said, not for the first time, that the Liberals wanted to “take Christmas away from Christmas”.

Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, spoke at the latest event, where he claimed China mocked the United States for its military allegedly promoting transgender pilots. “What do you think our enemies are doing? They laugh, he said.

However, it is perhaps the most recent event, held at the Phoenix Convention Center, which offers more information on the future of the nation.

When Trump spoke this summer, Joe Biden was still enjoying the increased approval rating that comes with being a new president.

A follow-up survey at the time by FiveThirtyEight suggested that 52% of Americans approved of his performance, while 42 disapproved. The full implications of the Delta and Omicron Covid-19 strains have also not become clear. Biden had again botched the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, or the Republicans had yet to fill their sails with the momentum of gubernatorial victory in Virginia.

Now all of this has happened. Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 43%, near an all-time low, and many believe Republicans are on their way to reclaiming both houses of Congress midway through 2022.

As such, at least some of the wishes displayed in Phoenix can come true.

It was not the first time that Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has expressed his intention to make Donald Trump the next Speaker of the House if the GOP takes control. He has already claimed that he spoke to Trump about it.

“Now the media hates him and the establishment fears him, but I kinda like House Speaker Donald J Trump’s ring after these mid-terms,” ​​he said on Sunday. “Can you imagine Nancy Pelosi’s face as she is asked to give that hammer to Donald Trump?” “

He added, “That’s how I introduced it to him. I said ‘Mr President, you only have to be President for about 20 minutes. You take the hammer and imagine the speech you would give when she has to watch with that bitter look on her ”. We have to start treating them the way they treat us.

Lauren Boebert, the Colorado congresswoman known for her vehement promotion of guns and the Second Amendment of the Constitution, suggested she would be happy to be one of Trump’s best collaborators and carry her gun with her in Congress. Firearms are permitted in MPs’ offices, but some lawmakers have claimed that some of their colleagues carry them with them at all times.

Interviewed by a reporter for right-wing broadcaster Real America’s Voice (RAV), Boebert learned she would make an excellent speaker.

“Well, Matt Gaetz wants me to be the whip,” Boebert said Monday. “I would need my Glock on my hip when I whip those votes.”

The couple concluded the interview by agreeing that Democratic MK Ilhan Omar had “played the role of victim” after Boebert compared Omar to a terrorist carrying bombs. “She needed more fundraising this quarter. This quarter has been a bit slow for her, ”said Boebert. “So let’s go to TV, let’s shed a few tears, and you know, play the victim.”

Initially, The independent had planned to attend the event in person. But given concerns about travel amid a new wave of coronavirus infections and the spread of Omicron, we’ve decided that to watch the live stream of the event, while different from being there in person, was a safer option, especially since a large number of people did not wear masks.

More worryingly, several high-level speakers have sought to question the effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines. Sarah Palin, who was the GOP running mate for John McCain, said that “on my corpse” she would allow authorities to force her to get the vaccine.

She said she had had the virus and that Chief Medical Advisor Dr Anthony Fauci spoke about natural immunity for those who had been sick with Covid-19.

“Now they’re telling us that even though we’ve had it – we have natural immunity – now that we still have to get vaccinated,” she said. “And it will be my corpse that I will be shot at.” No. I won’t and they better not touch my kids either.

Marjorie Greene Taylor, a Republican representative from Georgia, said she also had not received the vaccine.

“I’m not vaccinated and they’re going to have a hell of a time if they want to hold me back and get me vaccinated,” she said. “And I don’t think it should be anyone’s job to tell us that. People should have the right to choose.

In her speech, she also suggested that the January 6 riot was a false flag operation involving federal agents.

Among the most billed guests, along with Trump Jr, was 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse from Illinois, who has become a hero for gun rights activists after being found not guilty of all counts of charge, after shooting three people, two of them fatally, in the summer of 2020.

The shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, took place amid protests for racial justice. The teenager shot three white men and was charged with five counts, including first degree murder. The jury cleared him, after his lawyers argued that the teenager had acted in self-defense.

Kirk was one of those who asked the 18-year-old about softball, telling him, “We have to say he did everything right that night, that Kyle did it right and morally and legally. when someone tried to kill him … You held it all together You are a hero to millions of people.

Sometimes Rittenhouse looked a little sheepish at all the cheers he was getting. Yet he also seemed poised to take on the role of a self-defense hero, not entirely different from the way George Zimmerman behaved after he shot black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012 and was found innocent. of murder.

“I wanted to tell my story. I wanted to tell the world what happened in Kenosha, the truth, contrary to what the prosecution tried to say. This is why I took the floor, ”he said. “I think my trial was an example of them trying to come after our Second Amendment rights, a right to defend ourselves and take our guns.”

Fox News collaborator Kayleigh McEnany, who served as Trump’s last White House spokesperson on Tuesday, recounted, to applause, how she overcame her nerves on her first day on the job that had him. left in tears. The solution, she said, had been to kneel down with her parents on speakerphone and pray.

“Then I went to the private bathroom in the west wing. I knelt down and said a prayer. And when I walked in and stood on that podium, I went from tears to complete and utter serenity, ”she said. “I’m telling you, I felt like I was supposed to do this.”

Also on Tuesday, another Tory frontrunner, Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, who previously claimed to be “armed” on January 6, gave his take on foreign policy. “Until our southern border is secure, I don’t care about the border dispute in Ukraine.”

The final words have been left to Turning Point America founder Kirk. He said it was “a lie” that people “could have it all”.

“You have to prioritize certain things. You’re going to have to give up some things that might make you feel good in the moment, to pursue something that is more meaningful than an instant dopamine kick, ”said the 28-year-old.

“And here’s another good rule of thumb: if something feels good right now, it’s probably not good for you. ”
