Campaign Update - “Grifters and Performance Artists”?
December 21, 2021

Taffy Howard for Congress

The “squad” of communists who hide behind a curtain of progressivism in Washington, D.C. is not the only threat to our Constitution and country.

Many Congressmen will tell the public what they want to hear, but their vote on the House floor and their lack of policy reform show their true colors.

Much of the establishment leadership stems from shady backdoor deals and a shortfall of true integrity.

However, I’m thankful for those who are true conservatives, and who are willing to stand up for freedom and liberty.

Which is why I was so honored to be invited to be a member of the State Freedom Caucus Network! I went to Atlanta to be a part of the inaugural meeting, and had a wonderful time meeting with freedom-loving legislators from across the country.

In a recent Washington Post article, Rep. Dan Crenshaw seemingly alluded to members of the Freedom Caucus as “grifters” and “performance artists.”

The Freedom Caucus, also known as the House Freedom Caucus, is a congressional caucus made up of true conservative patriots such as Rep. Andy Biggs, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, and Rep. Lauren Boebert.

Crenshaw’s statement misrepresented the true motives of the Freedom Caucus, and whether intentionally or unintentionally, attacked the Americans that the Freedom Caucus represents.

Founded in 2015, the Freedom Caucus works to protect our God-given, Constitutional rights. It’s commonly referred to as the most conservative bloc in the House Republican Conference

The mission of the Freedom Caucus is to “[give] a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them.” The mission statement continues, “We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety, and prosperity of all Americans.”

In July of this year, while RINO’s such as Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger were supporting Nancy Pelosi’s orchestrated investigation of the storming of the Capitol on January 6th, members of the Freedom Caucus sent a letter to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy requesting to remove Pelosi from her position, citing, “Pelosi’s tenure is destroying the House of Representatives and our ability to faithfully represent the people we are here to serve.”

Furthermore, the House Freedom Caucus has introduced the creation of the State Freedom Caucus Network. The purpose of this network is to provide state legislators with resources in areas such as staffing, communication, strategy, tactics, and logistics.

I choose to stand by the Freedom Caucus and the American citizens they support, but I also need your support to continue this battle. A donation of $1000, $500, or $250 can help us bring another patriot to Washington, D.C.

Thankfully, Rep. Crenshaw quickly walked back his accusation, after many conservatives rose to defend the Freedom Caucus. He stated that he was referring to the fact that faux conservatives exist in our midst. Regardless, he backed off of his attack, and this is why we must stand up for one another.

I refuse to allow the political theater between the Democrats and RINO’s to continue in our country. We need REAL conservatives who are willing to stand up against those who are openly swimming in the swamp with the left. Your support is what will make that happen.
