From Political Insider
The fundraising statistics from March are in, and the Republican National Committee (RNC) is continuing their blowout start to the year.
Earlier today, the RNC announced that they raised $13.8 million in March, which set a new record for the RNC’s fundraising for that month in a non-presidential election year. The RNC has had record-setting fundraising months every month this year so far.
According to The Hill:
The RNC’s March haul brings the committee’s first-quarter fundraising to $39 million and boosts its total fundraising for the 2018 cycle to $171.5 million.
The RNC ends March with $42.9 million cash on hand, with no debt reported.
The RNC is planning to spend $250 million on the midterm elections this year as the party looks to protect its majority in the House. Democrats need to flip 23 seats to take back the lower chamber.
The DNC, meanwhile, has been a sinking ship.
For as much media enthusiasm as there has been for the anti-Trump “resistance,” none of these “resisters” seem to be putting their money where their mouths are.
In February, the DNC had to take on $2 million in debt to keep operations running, and they took an additional $160k in March. The DNC now has outstanding debt of over $6 million.
While the DNC has not yet released their fundraising numbers for March, they’ve been out-raised by the RNC for at least the past 11 consecutive months. In other words, once Trump became President, that’s when the RNC began picking up steam. That’s a positive sign for Republicans in the coming midterms.
As of February, the DNC had raised only $10 million (or less than what the RNC raised in March alone).
In an attempt to boost those figures, the DNC is going to be implementing a losing strategy next-month, by having Hillary Clinton speak at their annual Women’s Leadership Forum.
From Americans for limited Government
April 9, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging members of the House to cosponsor H.R. 559, the Modern Employment Reform, Improvement, and Transformation Act of 2017 or the MERIT Act of 2017 offered by U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) and the House to pass it:
“Every House Member should support the MERIT Act, which would expedite the removal of federal employees who have engaged in misconduct or are simply not performing, while limiting appeals to 30 days. Under current law it can take multiple years to remove an employee. A system that was initially designed to stop political manipulation of the civil service has become an unhealthy protection of bad behavior. Many Americans wonder how civil servants at the Justice Department who abused their power still have their jobs. The reason is because of antiquated civil service protections. Congress has already managed to reform this problem at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and it’s working, now it needs to be allowed to work for all the other departments and agencies to hold federal employees accountable for their actions. This is a bill whose time has come.”

Daughters of Liberty
The Revolutionary War brought women into many new causes. Although women’s organizations had begun to appear in the late 1600s, it was not until the mid 1700s that these organizations involved politics. The Daughters of Liberty proved that women’s involvement in politics could be beneficial to the country. They were relevant in the shaping of our American history.
Survey: Dems much more likely to talk about their guns

The revelation comes just as the American Academy of Family Physicians is launching a campaign to emphasize just that – talking about guns.

Mark Levin passionately defends conservatism and analyzes last night’s election in the opening monologue of the Wednesday broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio program. Here’s a partial transcript of Levin’s opening remarks:
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We’re not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We’re not good losers, you better believe we’re sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we’re called ‘purists.’ Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We’re purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans.
