URGENT: Pray for and call Speaker Mike Johnson

Friday, October 27, 2023, 10:35 am | Randy Thomasson

What I’ve learned about Mike Johnson, the new Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States of America, in the last 48 hours has thrilled me. And I want you to also be glad and hopeful for what Mike Johnson’s Christian leadership means for America.

Mike Johnson is likely to be the best speaker in your and my lifetime.

He’s not Kevin McCarthy’s “boy.” No, Johnson was the “stealth candidate” who almost wasn’t elected. Remember, the top three RINOs of “Team McCarthy” — Kevin McCarthy himself, McCarthy’s majority leader Steve Scalise, and McCarthy’s majority whip Tom Emmer — all crashed and burned due to conservative opposition.

After conservatives rejected Scalise, liberal Republicans, with McCarthy leading, killed the speaker candidacy of conservative constitutional champion Jim Jordan. Then, after Tom Emmer, the most liberal of the Republican nominees, was berated by conservatives upset with Emmer’s anti-family and unconstitutional votes and agendas (this went on for four straight hours, and eventually Emmer ended his candidacy), Republicans were left with the second-place voter-getter in that last round, which was Mike Johnson.

And that same evening, despite McCarthy still trying to sabotage Johnson’s ascendance to the speakership, in a spectacular moment, all the Republicans plotting to return McCarthy as speaker folded. By persevering, the conservatives had beaten the RINOs!

So, Mike Johnson is not part of the Swamp and is not a RINO. In this high-stakes “negotiation” between warring sides, Johnson only got elected because the RINOs eventually gave up due to strong opposition from moral conservatives and because McCarthy’s bad character was exposed.

Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson is refreshingly different from the RINO speakers you’ve had to live under the last two decades!

You see, Mike Johnson was a Christian constitutional attorney for many years. In law school, he was part of the Christian Legal Society. From 2002 to 2010, Johnson was an attorney and spokesman for Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). He also worked for First Liberty Institute. And, in 2015, he filed a lawsuit on behalf of Answers in Genesis for the Ark Encounter to receive fair treatment from Kentucky’s Democrat governor.

On Johnson’s own website, he describes how he “spent nearly 20 years successfully litigating high profile constitutional law cases in district and appellate courts nationwide and is widely recognized as a leading defender of the right to life, religious liberty, free speech, the Second Amendment and free market principles.”

So there you have it: Mike Johnson is a family-values champion for our First Amendment rights. Add to this the fact that Johnson is a strong Christian believer who fears God, and you’ve got the most trustworthy kind of man in the world.

What’s more, he’s very concerned about election fraud. In 2020 in the House of Representatives, Johnson organized an amicus brief signed by 126 House Republicans, challenging the election results in four swing states purportedly won by Joe Biden. 

Do you see how the Tyrannical, Immoral Left is viciously attacking him? Because of his conservative Christian values, Mike Johnson is good for you and is anathema to them.


Mike Johnson needs spiritual protection from the enemy’s attacks. Please pray in Name of Jesus Christ asking God to send angels to protect Mike Johnson, his staff, and his family.

And urge Johnson to investigate election fraud, something McCarthy was loathe to do. A Republican subcommittee to investigate election fraud must be a top priority. Exposing election fraud as real will motivate more Republican state legislatures to write and pass bills to reform the election process, including eliminating widescale mail-in ballots.

Please call Mike Johnson’s Washington, DC office at 202-225-2777 to leave this message: “I’m calling to say I’m glad Mike Johnson is speaker, I’m praying for him, and I urge him to create an election fraud subcommittee to publicly expose this huge problem.”

With many eyes focused on the 2024 presidential election, issues of election integrity are again coming to the forefront of the national conversation, as they should. Without fair, honest, and secure elections, we can’t sustain our democratic republic.

Who is new U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson?

Wednesday, October 25, 2023, 2:38 pm | Randy Thomasson

Well, the obvious fact is he’s not Kevin McCarthy. But even better, Johnson is much more conservative than McCarthy and is not part of the RINO crowd.

During the three-week saga of Republican nominees for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, we’ve gone from “RINO B” to “Constitutional Champ A” to “RINO A” to “Constitutional Champ B.”

Mike Johnson is a good speaker pick because the conservatives persevered and the RINOs folded!

And thank you for your phone calls demanding a conservative constitutional fighter!

And when New Communist Democrats Barbara Lee, Katie, Porter, and Adam Schiff are afraid of Speaker Mike Johnson, you should be glad.

Of all the Republican candidates for speaker this month, Mike Johnson of Louisiana was the 5th-most conservative, receiving 74% on his Liberty Score, after Gary Palmer (80%), Kevin Hern (82%), Jim Jordan (94%), and Byron Donalds (100%). Johnson known as a conservative constitutional scholar, who called for the arrest of Nancy Pelosi for destroying an official document.

Mike Johnson is a strong pro-life conservative and a strong pro-family conservative who has publicly opposed tyrannical “LGBTQIA+” activists.

And because a strong suit of Mike Johnson is he’s a leader for election integrity, and because he was a vocal opponent of the kangaroo-court “January 6th” committee and its sham “hearings,” we must lobby Johnson to release all the January 6, 2021 videotapes, commission a subcommittee investigation of election-fraud allegations nationwide, and investigate the due process rights being denied political prisoners in both Washington, D.C. and Minneapolis.

We need aggressive, eye-opening investigations of the open border, the harm of Planned Parenthood abortionists and the “LGBTQIA+” agenda, the desperate need for medical freedom, and the absolute need to protect our God-given parental rights, religious rights, and small business rights. We also need to demand tough investigations and public exposure of the Bidens and the Deep State. Mike Johnson can deliver all this, whereas Kevin McCarthy was not our champion, but was, at many times, an obstacle.

ACT NOW: Please call the office of Speaker of the House Mike Johnson at 202-225-2777 to leave a message telling him what he needs to investigate.

Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

Needed: A conservative constitutional fighter

Sunday, October 22, 2023, 12:05 pm | Randy Thomasson

2ND UPDATE Tuesday Oct. 24: In tonight’s Republican caucus meeting, a fourth round of voting to choose a House speaker nominee. And, with 128 votes, Mike Johnson of Louisiana has the majority. Among all the speaker candidates so far, with Liberty Score of 74%, Mike Johnson is the 5th-most conservative (after Byron Donalds (100%), Jim Jordan (94%), Kevin Hern (82%), and Gary Palmer (80%). So will the RINOs finally fold and support Johnson?

UPDATE Tuesday Oct. 24: Today, RINO Tom Emmer (Majority Whip under former speaker Kevin McCarthy) won the majority vote of the Republican caucus. Yet it took four ballots, more Emmer and his moderate/liberal “Republican” allies expected. Then Emmer requested a roll call vote of Republicans and more than 20 conservative, moral-values Republicans said “no way” to Emmer’s left-leaning candidacy. So after 4 hours of hard questions in this private “town hall meeting,” Emmer ended his bid for speaker (see latest updates).

As soon as Wednesday, Oct. 25, another round — five Republicans will speak to the Republican caucus members about why they should be speaker. Among the five now running, can you spot the RINOs (Republicans in Name Only)? Hint: They have low grades on conservative, constitutional policies:

Byron Donalds of Florida
Liberty Score 100% (A grade)

Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee
Liberty Score 56% (F grade)

Mark Green of Tennessee
Liberty Score 85% (B grade)

Mike Johnson of Louisiana
Liberty Score 74% (C grade)

Roger Williams of Texas
Liberty Score 76% (C grade)

Call your Republican U.S. Rep now at 202-225-3121 to demand Byron Donalds as speaker!

After rejecting both RINO Steve Scalise and pro-family constitutionalist Jim Jordan, the registered Republicans running the U.S. House of Representatives are now on “round three” of speaker candidates.

Demonstrating how this race is now wide open, there are several who have thrown their hats into the ring. On Friday, SaveCalifornia.com showed our social media followers the conservative moral/social/fiscal issues Liberty Scores of the speaker candidates:

Today’s update is Jodey Arrington of Texas is not running, but Gary Palmer of Alabama is. And among the Republican speaker candidates, Palmer has the third-highest Liberty Score — 80%. The Republican caucus is expected to hold internal votes as soon as this Tuesday.

UPDATE Monday, Oct. 23: RINO Republican Dan Meuser has dropped out.

Why do these scores, based on member’s actual votes, matter? Because we need a conservative constitutional fighter as the powerful Speaker of the House to: short-term, steadfastly stop all bad bills; mid-term, aggressively use the House’s investigatory powers to expose the Deep State, the Bidens, election fraud, and much more; and long-term, to help true conservatives (not RINOs) be elected.

TAKE QUICK ACTION: Call your own Republican U.S. Representative (if you have one), to say “Support a conservative constitutional fighter for speaker.” It would also be wise to name your top 1, 2, or 3 speaker picks, since at Tuesday’s private, internal meeting, there might be several ballots in an elimination process. Call 202-225-3121 and provide your zip code, or send an email via house.gov when you enter your zip code.
