New Zealand author, speaker, and political researcher Trevor Loudon stopped by the Western Journalism studio recently to discuss world events and the balance of power in the United States with our own Andrea Combs. Mr. Loudon is deeply concerned that America is dangerously close to becoming a “one-party state” if the Republicans are not victorious in both the 2014 mid-term election in November and the 2016 presidential election.
“The democrats basically want to create a one-party state. So I’m trying to put some urgency into the ranks of the conservatives and get them to unify. But what I’m basically advocating is that, really, we have one major election–2016–to take this country back. And conservatives, libertarians, constitutionalists have to set aside their differences, get a real conservative standard bearer for the 2016 elections. It cannot be a Republican moderate, because that will not unite the base.”
“So, basically telling people to get into the GOP, take over those precinct positions as nominating bodies of the party, and do what they did for Reagan in 1980: Prepare the way for a real conservative, a Ted Cruz or a Scott Walker or someone of that caliber, so that the conservative movement will be unified, will stand together, and has a chance of winning that election and making that victory worth something.”
He is encouraging conservatives to be unified to make sure “the GOP gives them the leaders they deserve, not the leaders that the old guard want.”

Mrs. Combs asked Mr. Loudon about how the Tea Party kickstarted the “second revolution” in America.
“In 2008, the Left thought they had a slam dunk. They had the House, they had the Senate, they had the man in the White House, and their agenda was all written out. And those Sixties radicals, you know, the Bill Ayers and the Bernardine Dohrns, those types who have been burrowing through the Democratic party, and the unions, and the media, and the universities, finally everything had come together for them. And they were going to have a revolution in this country. They were going to take control of State power.
“In 2009 and in 2010, the miraculous happened. The Tea Party came out of nowhere, a bunch of amateurs and novices stood up and basically took back the House. And that brought the agenda of the Left to a grinding, screeching halt, to stop them cold-stone dead. Because I said, the Tea Party saved America. If they had not done that, the entire agenda of the Left would be in now: Card check, cap and trade, green jobs, Obamacare would be locked in. Ten, twelve, twenty million illegals would be voting in this election. Conservatives would be done.”
