A special shout-out to Evan McMullin.
Who unwittingly raised money for Mike Lee.
In December 2021, I began noticing that email newsletters I expected weren’t arriving in my inbox anymore. I got in the habit of checking the spam folder in Gmail, but realized a month later that they were also being squelched for another email address at the domain level by Microsoft.
Some were spam. A lot were conservative or Christian newsletters. No health freedom newsletters were getting through. Who’d have thought Big Tech would be so aggressive that they’d call the daily devotional from my mother—an email address in my contacts list—spam.
God forbid you mention God.
Anyway, I’ve had to develop the daily habit of clearing out two spam boxes because no matter how many times I perform the action of whitelisting, Microsoft and Google simply will not deliver some email to my inbox.
It’s during these excursions that I discovered a nearly uncountable number of emails from the RNC and from Evan McMullin.
The only thing more difficult than unsubscribing from the RNC list is stitching up the knife wound in your own back put there by people like McMullin.
I thought I’d share my unsubscribe request with you, because when I’ve had a wild day, my writing gets an edge:
Until I checked my spam, I had no idea I was still on Evan McMullin's email list.
Yes, after deciding I shouldn't write in my dad for president, I wrote Evan in, and even got some sticker or something from a meager donation, back in 2016. I regretted it ever since, and voted for Trump in 2020. I'd vote for him again.
As one friend told me back in 2016, when asking about the voting conundrum we faced then before realizing what a great job Trump would do as president, "there's no way I'm ever voting for a spook."
You know, in light of what we're learning about Fauci and the rest of those powerful folks (the Bush family, the CIA, etc etc etc) who profit off of the status quo and the abject misery of the average citizen—all politically disguised as "getting along like good centrist folks"—I think that's pretty decent advice.
I will give to Mike Lee's campaign if I get another email from you people.
Bless your hearts, I have zero interest in Evan's race to be a Utah Senator SINCE I LIVE IN NORTH DAKOTA. And, since our nation is in the damn toilet thanks to the Biden regime, I don't think running as a contrast to Trump is a super great appeal to reason. Yes, I know mean tweets and NYC construction worker parlance and accent is super difficult to process in our smarmy "if a snake wears a suit and speaks nice we think he's a good guy" political climate, but the results from President Trump were spectacular. (Except for Operation Warp Speed, a huge mistake, no doubt one celebrated in the halls of the CIA, where Evan once joyfully received his paycheck.)
May the trucks of a thousand convoys shut down the nation's capital and every crime-infested blue city from this day forward, making way only for the convoys of average Joes who don't care if you've raised more money than Mike Lee who are headed to MAGA rallies.
Have a nice day.
You might not think the country is in the toilet, but considering that Biden raised insulin prices via EO on his first day in office, and basically just put forth free taxpayer-funded crack pipes during black history month, I think we could have some discussion on that.
It’s fair to say I probably should have waited to unsubscribe on a day when I wasn’t in bit of a mood; the results would have been far more genteel.
Nevertheless, the emails have continued, and so I have just sent my first donation of $10 to Mike Lee’s campaign.
I could have used that for other things, such as two gallons of gas.
Up until now, I have paid zero attention to Mike Lee, and couldn’t have picked him out of a lineup.
I do note that, when searching for Mike Lee’s website, I was served up with news stories of how McMullin has raised more funds than Lee. I don’t know what kind of measurement fundraising is, other than alerting the public that people with lots of money who don’t live in your state are trying to influence the election of your state. George W., a Texas example, gave funds to the illustrious Liz Cheney and the like, and the media takes delight in ignoring polls and instead, touting fundraising totals as a stand-in for the outcome of an election, as if money could buy votes.
Perhaps I should have included a link where McMuffin and Co. could donate to my campaign as El Presidente Del Downstairs Basement Office. At least as sitting president of the basement office, I’m generally coherent and answer my own questions end of quote.
