Sarah Huckabee Sanders announces run for Arkansas governor

Sarah Sanders

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced Monday that she is running for governor of Arkansas in 2022.

Sanders previously served as White House Press Secretary for President Donald Trump from 2017 to 2019. After departing from her position in June 2019, Trump urged Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas, tweeting, “She would be fantastic.”

In a nearly 8-minute long video released on Twitter Monday morning, Sanders said, “As governor, I will defend your right to be free of socialism and tyranny.”

“Our state needs a leader with the courage to do what’s right, not what’s politically correct or convenient,” she continued.

Sanders is the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who served from 1996 to 2007. He was also a candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination in both 2008 and 2016.

“My dad always said, the real test of a leader is not the way you handle issues you know are coming, it’s rising to the moment in a crisis you could never plan for.”

Sanders hopes to be the first woman governor of Arkansas.

“I was only the third woman, and the first mom to serve as White House Press Secretary,” Sanders said. “With your support, I hope to be the first woman to lead our state as governor.”

Moreover, Sanders vowed to promote law and order, prohibit sanctuary cities, fight back against the green new deal, lower state income tax and create new jobs.

Sanders is seeking to replace current GOP Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is barred by term limits from running for reelection next year. Sanders will run against Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge in the Republican primary. No Democrats have formally announced their candidacy.

“I will not retreat, I will not surrender and I will not bow down to the radical left, not now, not ever,” Sanders said. “As governor, I will defend our freedom and lead with heart.”

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
