Today’s general session of the Idaho Republican Convention was largely uneventful, with one exception. Trent Clark from Caribou County tried multiple different variations of parliamentary inquiries to give Bingham County the ability to seat delegates. Bingham County is the sole county in the state that failed to pay its dues...
The community’s largest full-scale emergency response exercise was conducted this morning at Timberlake High School as part of the training necessary to prepare for critical life-threatening scenarios.

Our enemies and our elites have set the stage for the first major battles on American soil since Lee and Grant met at Appomattox Courthouse in 1865. Their preparations have been so thorough that widespread battles in our streets, along with the prospect of parts of our land actually being occupied by an enemy army, are more likely than not.
