The Case for Mike Flynn, Republican Candidate for the Illinois' 18th District

"In politics today, sadly, we don't debate issues as much as the theater around those issues." -- Mike Flynn, June 6, 2015, laying out his case in opposition to the TPA

"[T]rust that a Mike Flynn win is not a local win -- it's a national blow against Boehner approaching the importance of the Brat victory. -- PJ Media's David Steinberg detailing the dirty tricks campaign being run against Mike Flynn by supporters of Establishment fave-rave Darin LaHood

I have previously endorsed Mike Flynn. But that's easy. Let me explain my case for him.

I previously remarked that Flynn might be a genius. I didn't mean this as an empty boast or bit of trivia. What I intended by that -- but did not say -- is that we in America are currently in the most desperate war of ideas we've faced since the 1930s, and we on the conservative side simply do not have enough political representatives capable of engaging in this fight.

There is a slur the Political Class likes to use against Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, and, I suppose, even low-level pundits like me: The "Entertainment Wing" of the party. See, the Political Class is the Serious Wing, but we thinkers, writers, and talkers are merely the "Entertainment Wing."

This is precisely backwards. I disagree with Rush Limbaugh from time to time, but I do not doubt that he actually believes in the ideas he transmits to his listeners.

I heard about the Corker Iran sell-out from two members of the "Entertainment Wing" -- Mark Levin and Andrew C. McCarthy. Both of them told me the Corker bill actually pre-approved Obama's Iran deal, and made it nearly impossible to block later.

This turns out to have been true. If anyone from the non-"Entertainment Wing" has a credible argument against this, I have not heard it-- and I've been looking.

So the "Entertainment Wing" told me the truth about the Corker bill, and the Political Class -- the Serious Wing, I guess -- gave me a silly sales pitch.

So, we have a so-called "Entertainment Wing" that actually believes in the ideas it is transmitting, and an allegedly Serious Wing, aka the Political Class, which does not believe in these ideas, but instead cynically deploys them as Sitcom Catch-Phrases every Ratings Sweeps Period (better known as the US federal elections).

So you tell me: Who is the Entertainment Wing, again?

Who seeks to distract us, and who seeks to speak to us about important issues?

Who treats ideas as if they matter, and who treats ideas as if they are merely Commercial Jingles employed in pitches for a product you don't want?

Most politicians are not particularly fluent in ideas. You will frequently hear politicians speaking conservatism as if it is a second language -- if it is that at all. Indeed, politicians frequently only know the language of conservatism the way that business travelers do -- learning some French a couple of weeks before a sales meeting in Paris.

Little wonder that they stick so closely to stock phrases.

Many conservatives are chagrined that few of our leaders are making the case for conservatism. What they seem to do, most of the time, is run away from arguments, or try to soft-pedal them and pretend they're not arguments at all.

They do so because they simply do not have the intellectual musculature to actually fight on the these ideas. If pushed, even a little bit, they will crumble to the ground.

So they hide. And they issue well-scrubbed press releases that don't say much at all.

Mike Flynn has something all of you do. Something all writers have, something all readers have. Something all students of history and politics have: An actual abiding interest in ideas.

I don't know if we need an ideologue for a Congressman -- the word sounds so negative, and anyone called an "ideologue" is a guy people aren't going to elect -- but I'll tell you what we do need: An ideovore, an ideophile. Someone who eats ideas, someone who loves ideas.

If you're sending a man to be your emissary in Kabul, you're going to want him to be fluent in Pashtun. And if you're sending someone to represent you in a far darker and more savage court -- the one in Washington DC -- you're going to want a man who's fluent in ideas.

Ideas move men. Not campaign war chests and not three-millimeters-deep bumper stickers. But Ideas.

Mike was speaking at an event. Mike supports the idea of starting an Article V convention. But one woman -- clearly invested in the issue -- did not. She feared that the left would hijack any such convention, and what we would be left with was a country even more leftwing, with even fewer rights of the individual, than we have now.

Did Mike run away from this? Did he crumple to the ground? Did he, as so many politicians do, simply sneer at her concerns, because he had no better response at hand?

No. He said to her that while he understood that concern, it has to be kept in mind that three quarters of the states need to ratify an Article V constitution, and while it is possible the left could hijack the convention itself, it seems impossible to imagine they could command majorities in two thirds of the states, as they only control about one third of them now.

At the end of this town hall, the woman told him that she wasn't quite convinced he was right about the unlikelihood of that happening, but that she wanted to volunteer to support him.

You don't have to sneer someone down if you actually have enough information and logic to have a polite and informative discussion with them.

Sneering is what people do when they must say something in response but don't know enough to offer up facts and logic.

This is why I think Mike Flynn could be a game-changer in the Congress. He gets it. If you think I'm smart-- well, he's smarter. And he knows a lot more than I do.

A few months ago I was talking to Mike Flynn, and we talked about the books we were reading. I mentioned I was reading Dracula, which I never read before, assuming it to be bad. (It's good!)

Mike said he was re-reading Will and Ariel Durant's 11-volume Story of Civilization. He said he was up to volume four, I think, and later mentioned he'd stopped reading at volume six (the Renaissance).

Men do not have to sneer at each other if they are sufficiently confident of their ability to discuss ideas.

One time I was talking about Mike about the Second Amendment. The discussion involved the fact that the Second Amendment seems, pretty clearly, to be about, at the end of the day, an armed citizenry's ability to resist an oppressive government, should that dark day arrive. I mentioned that the left keeps insisting that the Second Amendment is all about huntin' some ducks.

Mike said: "The Framers of the Constitution did not write the Second Amendment to protect against a Tyranny of Geese."

And then he chuckled that dry laugh of his.

We need some people in Congress -- not just out on the radio, not just writing books but in the actual well of Congress -- explaining to people that the Second Amendment is not about the Framer's fear of the Tyranny of Geese. We need someone who gets that, and someone fluent enough with ideas to actually articulate that in an appealing and interesting way.

Mike has declared his intention to "upend CSPAN's business model" -- that is, he intends to be thought leader and public communicator, actually practicing democracy as it was meant to be practiced, as an actual dialogue between the representative and represented.

Not a rigged game where some know-nothing hacks balance one group's support with another group's donation and then come out to announce the decision they've made without your input.

Democracy. Debate. Dissent. The Consent of the Governed. Either we insist the Political Class take these ideas seriously again, or we just pack up the whole thing.

We swim in waters made for us -- befouled for us -- by progressive fish. They create the waste-tainted waters we swim in. And these waters we swim in are heavily biased to the left -- the left's talking points are always the Safe Harbor for weak, cowardly minds to parrot.

That is to say, the weaker of mid you are, the more willing to bend yourself to comport with The Collective, the more likely you are to ape the positions of the Left.

You need someone with brains to resist this, and pardon my language, you need someone with some balls.

Mike has both.

Andrew Breitbart's highest praise was to call someone "a warrior." If you were tough and courageous in your conservative chops, you got the accolade. You got called "a Warrior."

I never got called this myself, but I was always hoping I'd one day make the Warrior cut. But that's how Breitbart introduced Mike to me -- "a warrior."

When Breitbart was starting Breitbart.com, and needed an editor for Big Government, he hired Mike. Andrew wasn't looking for a clock-puncher. And he wasn't looking for weak sisters. He wanted Warriors --Mike Flynn, Dana Loesch, John Nolte. These aren't the sort of people to shrink from a fight, or to simper to the dominant Liberal Media Consensus in hopes that the alligator will eat them last.

Breitbart picked people who didn't mind throwing a punch, and people who didn't mind taking one.

And Mike Flynn was Breitbart's lieutenant from the beginning.

Mike Flynn understands, as Andrew Breitbart understood, that some fights cannot be ducked. Some fights must be had, even if it causes the Political Class intestinal discombobulation and might get them some nasty looks from their progressive pals.

I think Mike Flynn will immediately become a thought leader in Congress. If you think it's absurd that a freshman, half-turn Representative could become such -- ask yourself, how many other people are currently vying for the position?

Maybe six? Ten? Fifteen? Certainly almost no one from the Establishment -- they don't seek to convince their voters of the rightness of their decisions.

They merely seek to exhaust us from protesting them, until we protest no more.

And then they win.

I know a lot of you are beaten up and broken hearted. And I know that many of you think maybe it's time to just give up.

I know I feel that way. I have felt that way for a year at least. I have felt that way so long it feels like I never felt anything but that way.

But every once in a while, it's a good idea to try to believe, and to try throwing a punch, if only to convince ourselves that we still have the starch to do it.

Is the race winnable? It sure is. For some reason, Darin LaHood is promoting his endorsement by the US Chamber of Commerce, as if that's a good thing.

And supporters of Darin LaHood are acting desperate -- read this piece about the dishonest push-polls some supporters of LaHood are using against Mike. You'll remember supporters of LaHood previously made up a fake gay group to fake endorse Mike Flynn to scare voters away.

And I hear another tactic is taking Mike Flynn's endorsement of Rush Limbaugh's Operation: Chaos -- you remember, in 2008, when Obama was beating Hilary but had not quite won yet, Limbaugh suggested that Republicans in Pennsylvania, Illinois, and other late-voting states vote for Hillary in order to keep her in the race, and keep Obama spending money to fight her off, and keep the Democrat Party from unifying -- and claiming that this makes Mike, absurdly, a "secret Democrat."

Pushing Rush Limbaugh's Operation: Chaos makes you a Democrat?

Rush Freakin' Limbaugh is now part of the Secret Democrat Conspiracy against Obama's Transportation Secretary's Son?

Again: Who is the real "Entertainment Wing" here, and who are the people who are actually interested in ideas?

Mike Flynn's opponent is not a bad man, I imagine. But he seems to have fallen into country-club Republican politics the same way many hardware store owners' sons falls into hardware. Not out of any particular interest in the subject matter, but because it's the easiest way to make a comfortable living. You've got the connections, you've got the in, and, heck, your name is already written on the awning over the door.

As the son of Ray LaHood, former liberal Republican Congressman turned Obama Transportation Secretary, Darin LaHood is just the sort of man the Establishment likes.

Darin LaHood will be a reliable vote for the John Boehner/Karl Rove brand of suburban shopping mall Republicanism. If you want a little crony capitalism to go with your Skinny Vente Mocachino, Darin LaHood's your guy.

If you want something different -- something better -- something smarter -- something ballsier -- something that could actually change things in these dark days of America's last gasps, then vote for-- support -- knock on doors -- and donate to my friend Mike Flynn.

The first New Media candidate, the first Republican Congressmen -- God willing -- who really understands the new media environment, because it's been his day job for six years.

Believing is dangerous. Believing can wind up hurting, which is why few people are so willing to do so anymore.

Believing takes courage.

But faint heart never won fair lady. And this sort of tremulous, Im-so-embarrassed-these-goons-make-me-say-this style of Republican communication is not going to change the trajectory of the country from its current vector directly into the heart of Greece.

We need a change. We need a message, and we need a Messenger. We need to make a big noise that we will no longer put up with Business as Usual as the country, and indeed the world, burns.

We need Mike Flynn.

The primary is July 7 (the Establishment cooked up a short schedule to keep their boy from facing a rising challenge) so we need to work fast.

But we can do this.

This is a Romney +25 district. We do not have to settle for an Olympia Snowe candidate here.

Like Mike said to me, when I first asked him about is campaign message: "If we keep saying we want something different, don't we actually have to demand something different at some point"?

This election means a lot more than you know. The Establishment thinks they have our number -- that we grumble, that we whine, that we complain in blog comments and on calls to talk radio hosts, but, end of the day, We are blowhards and bigmouths who never actually do anything.

Well, Mike Flynn decided his days of just sitting around doing nothing were over.

I hope you'll support him.

We need to do something.

Andrew Breitbart's View: Lurkering Lurker posts this excerpt from Breitbart's "Righteous Indignation," p. 167-168 (hardback):

All I had to do now was make 'those unbelievable ACORN videos' a household phrase. Luckily, I had a sterling team on board. Big Gov was headed up by a good friend, Mike Flynn... Aside from being an outstanding writer and editor himself, Mike was by far my number one connector in Washington circles when it came to limited-government and fiscal-responsibility types. His last job had been with the Reason Foundation, so his conservative/libertarian credentials were intact. He understood state government because he'd worked there; he understood the federal government as well. He knew the best writers and researchers. So I asked Mike to fly out to California for 'an important meeting'; I wanted to do this in person. Sitting across from him, I had only one question that mattered: 'What do you know about ACORN?' A smile broke across his face. 'A lot.'"

21 Interesting that Flynn has a reasonable answer to my biggest fear of an Article V Convention.

I think he is correct, but the downside is that the convention might not do what we want done because we do not control enough statehouses.

28 Yes, this is the problem with the current crop of Republican presidential candidates. So far, none of them have shown an ability to articulate conservatism the way a Reagan or a Thatcher could. It's harder to be a conservative candidate than a liberal because you can't just promise shit. You have to come up with an appealing way of explaining to people that conservatism is in their best interest. Reagan did the hard work over many decades that is necessary to develop those communication strategies and tactics.

This is a wise choice but I will donate to Flynn anyway. It's sorta like buying a lotto ticket and dreaming what you will do when you hit it.The odds are about as good if you didn't buy the ticket. Mike Flynn will either be neutered or corrupted.But the money will soon not have a lot of value.

Although, if he was Andrew's right hand, that speaks volumes in his favor.

RLTW, I've been reading this blog for the last four or five years, and I've never seen Ace be so passionate about a candidate. It has to start somewhere. Your reply is to just give up. You won't join the fight, you'll just give up. We've been ceding ground for years and we're losing the culture war. You are content to just raise the white flag, concede to the other side and just hunker down. That won't work anymore. If you, and others like you, have already conceded the fight, then the fight is lost.
If you could, liken this to the Battle of Britain. A small handful of men turned the tide because they believed in their cause. Many paid with their lives. Had they failed, the world would be a very different place. But they fought because they knew in their hearts that what they did mattered.
You may have already conceded the battlefield, but Ace, and others here, are not yet ready to surrender. Not by a long shot.
I stand with Ace, and with Mike Flynn. I'm not ready to live on my knees.

86 I just cannot imagine Durant's Civilization thing would be worth slogging through. No matter how "good" it is, who has that much time?

I felt the same way about Churchill's History of English Speaking Peoples, but got a condensed version... now I cannot quite recall how/what was in it...

Anyway, some people are readers. They eat, sleep, drink reading. I don't know what that means, ultimately. Are they smarter? Better informed about what needs to be known? More practical?

I really don't know.

Dracula is a wonderful book, by the way. Everything you need to have in a good, moral, horror story. Now everything is anti-Dracula, in terms of what ends up happening. Who deserves what, in the end. Dracula didn't let anybody get away with anything. Everyone had to pay for their sins. That's not a good thing.

161 Great. My congressidiot is Peter DeFazio, who never met a tax he didn't think should be higher, and who's basically got a lifetime seat, as there's no way he'll ever get less than 60% of the vote.

And when the policies he's been actively supporting for decades are finished destroying the country, hey, no problem, he's got a retirement home set up in New Zealand to go to. Seriously. I wish I could borrow the barbed-wire-wrapped flaming pineapple from upthread.

171 In every revolution, there's one man with an idea.

Perhaps Mike Flynn is that man. We need a revolution; hopefully the peaceful kind that comes from the ballot, but we may get the other kind.

From Ace's essay, we all need to have someone that will carry our hopes, and ideas. I hope that Mike, among others, can be one of those men, or women.

My congressman, Pat Tiberi, has betrayed me and many others, and supported Boehner on the TPP and TPA (he was actually in the middle of it as a sub-committe chairman). I can no longer support him. I will vote against him in the primary, and vote for the Democrat should it come to that in the general (unless it is Bob Fitzrakis again, who is actually a communist, then I will just not vote).

And Boehner. There's going to be a reckoning.
Like I said, there's a revolution coming.

This year we sharpen our pencils and words.

I tend to agree with Vic. Burned multiple times, and am damn sick and tired of it.

On a related note: what I want from a candidate -- and it's damn near ALL I want from a candidate -- is for them to loudly proclaim, multiple times, that he (or she) will actively oppose, and personally and publicly aid in the prosecution of, any member of Congress or President who engages in acts that violate their oaths of office and/or the Constitution. Further, that they will take an and all legal measures to prevent such actions when they come before Congress, before any other business is conducted.

Has this Flynn dude said anything to that effect, ace?

If so, I could support him....

209 "I'm done with Republicans." - Ace

Here's why I'm not supporting Mike Flynn: He cannot articulate a strategy for the elimination of the Democrat Party. It's not even one of his goals in life.

Ace, you feel like you can't win because you don't even know there's a war on. There is a war on. That war is the elimination of the Democrat Party as a political entity in the United States of America.

There is a way to destroy it.

Now we just need people who seek that goal as the endgame.

The Democrats are 50 years into their plan to eliminate the Republican Party. If you go to their meetings, they'll happily discuss with you their strategy and their tactics.

Republicans don't even have a goal. They just want to win the next election.

You feel like a loser, Ace, because you have no concept of what war is, how to fight one, or even that there is one ongoing. You're a victim of it and you don't even realize who you're fighting, or that a war is being waged against you.

You have no hope of winning.

219 The idea that an admirer of Hezbollah and Hamas should be a serious contender to lead the British Labour Party might seem fanciful. But amid the climate of confusion and self-doubt that plagues the freshly defeated opposition, this is exactly what is coming to pass.

Jeremy Corbyn, the 66-year-old hard left activist who has made a career out of opposing American and British imperialism, is one of four candidates to succeed Ed Miliband as Labour leader. One poll, by the influential LabourList website, finds him the favorite, with his left wing credentials and anti austerity stance attracting unexpected numbers of Labour supporters eager to break with the legacy of Tony Blair.

actually Mike Flynn's pet project has been defunding the Left -- he is always sending me tips about attempts to get the left defunded. You probably don't know this, being a stupid, truculent chicken-brain, but the left has gotten the government/the taxpayers to fund many/most of its agitation fronts. ACORN was just the tip of the iceberg (and Mike was directly involved in bringing that down).

247 actually Mike Flynn's pet project has been defunding the Left -- he is always sending me tips about attempts to get the left defunded. You probably don't know this, being a stupid, truculent chicken-brain, but the left has gotten the government/the taxpayers to fund many/most of its agitation fronts. ACORN was just the tip of the iceberg (and Mike was directly involved in bringing that down).


Posted by: ace at June 24, 2015 06:19 PM (bhepQ)

After the '94 election in which Rs took control of Congress for the first time in forever, National Review, which was then known as a conservative magazine, ran a cover story titled "De-Fund the Left". The Republicans didn't do it, and the rest is history.

I would like someone committed not only to cutting future funding, but also to clawing back money that has been illegally spent over the last several years. This admin has spent tens of billions of dollars without Congressional authorization, and we should have several people dedicated to getting it back by seizing assets, attaching honoraria for future ex-Presidential speeches, etc.

I just went to his website, on the Issues tab. Elimination of the Democrat Party isn't one of his listed issues. But he does have a plan to fix ObamaCare and "reform" the tax code (i.e. keep it funding Democrats).

321 Brietbart, Andrew, "Rigtheous Indignation," p. 167-68 (hardback).

"All I had to do now was make 'those unbelievable ACORN videos' a household phrase. Luckily, I had a sterling team on board. Big Gov was headed up by a good friend, Mike Flynn... Aside from being an outstanding writer and editor himself, Mike was by far my number one connector in Washington circles when it came to limited-government and fiscal-responsibility types. His last job had been with the Reason Foundation, so his conservative/libertarian credentials were intact. He understood state government because he'd worked there; he understood the federal government as well. He knew the best writers and researchers. So I asked Mike to fly out to California for 'an important meeting'; I wanted to do this in person. Sitting across from him, I had only one question that mattered: 'What do you know about ACORN?' A smile broke across his face. 'A lot.'"

Pretty good endorsement, I think. In fact, I'd be surprised if part of the plan here isn't to try to shove some sunlight up D.C.'s ass and watch the cockroaches scatter.

We had a reunion and Medic Scott told us that he automatically ditched all of his friends vials when.they did.the random.selection. To be on the safe side was his reasoning. I went to A-Dam a few times, so he could very well.have saved me.from an Article a15 or worse.

Errr -- if you say so.

I have several friends who have cabins in upstate NY. They lock their quads and toys in shipping containers with a bunch of dead bolts, and leave their cabins unlocked, anticipating assholes breaking in.

354 Homeland Security will begin releasing more illegal immigrant families from detention, Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Wednesday as he bowed to political pressure from activists and members of Congress whod called the conditions inhumane for families.

Despite offering amenities for the illegal immigrants ranging from flat-screen televisions in every suite, classrooms and ball fields at their disposal and 24-hour access to snacks and sodas, Mr. Johnson said hes concluded things are still too harsh.

As bad as New York State is for gun laws, New York City is worse.


It is certainly possible, in fact almost certain, that some of the cabins are owned by people from New York City. Bringing even a bolt action rifle or a double barreled shotgun into New York City requires a bunch of paperwork and bureaucratic bullshit in order to stay in compliance with the law. It would not surprise me a bit to learn that some people prefer to avoid that hassle and stay legal by leaving their guns in their hunting cabin.

398 I was disappointed by the Durant's volume on the Renaissance. There was a thorough discussion and description of the art, but few (and those poor quality) pictures of the art.

I suppose the thing to do, since actually traveling to see the remaining examples of the art is beyond my means, is to reread that volume with the computer at hand to look up images, recognizing that much of the three-dimensionality is lost by flat representations.
