I am still in awe that the City of Albuquerque takes innocent people's cars. Its unconscionable, not to mention, stupid, greedy and unconstitutional. Here is one battle won, but not the war. Ill keep fighting. #NMTrue Thank you Joline Gutierrez Krueger for a great article! I hope there is public outrage at what these good people endured, and I hope the City of Albuquerque's next Mayor makes some much needed changes, not just lip service. Dan Lewis

Thank you Albuquerque Journal and Joline Gutierrez Krueger for covering this happy end to a sad legal story. Justice was done in the end, but the tragedy should have never happened and it certainly should not have taken so long. Shame on the City of Albuquerque, but its good to see this good #NMTrue family prevail. (Finally!) #MAGA

Breaking: NM unemployment worst in the nation

New Mexico's livability continues to plummet with today's newest unemployment stats. Families are fleeing in record numbers, crime continues to go on the rise, meaningful job-creating businesses continue to look at neighboring states & the legislature has taken precious time to debate hamburgers and license plates. #nmpol #nmleg #NewMexico #MAGA #MNMGA

New Mexico's unemployment rate is now the highest in the nation, after ticking up slightly in January, according to federal figures released today. The state's rate was 6.7 percent in January, compared to 6.6 percent…

'Meaningless bills' may force New Mexico special session

When I was serving in the Senate, these so-called bills were not only the source of frustration for me & many of my colleagues, but for the people of #NewMexico who entrusted us with their support. We must get focused on job creation, poverty, taxes & education! This state remains stagnant while time continues to get frittered away in Santa Fe. #MAGA #nmpol #nmleg

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says state lawmakers' focus on "meaningless bills" such as establishing the official state dance may force her to call a special session.

State cuts, fewer students put NM higher ed in crisis

Our system of higher ed has been heading to a boiling point for decades. We're saturated with small schools throughout the state, many of which serve small populations while straining the entire system. We have innovative institutions that have been developing cutting-edge #STEM programs which we should hold up as shining examples while finding ways to consolidate others. #NewMexico #Education #MAGA

With declining enrollment, rising costs and 31 campuses, is the system sustainable?

Most Say Democrats Hurt Themselves With Anti-Trump Strategy - Rasmussen Reports™

You can't govern on the premise of opposing everything, everywhere; it's bad for the nation & it puts our communities in danger. #Democrats have a fundamental issue they need to resolve on the ideological end.

On this #PresidentsDay, I can't help think about the trials & tribulations our nation, & leaders have endured; from the Framers risking their lives for a social contract to the Civil War & the abolition of slavery, to having the moral authority around the world on behalf of freedom during the Cold War, to our ideological polarization today. No matter our differences & predispositions, we live in the greatest country on Earth & I'm thankful for the freedoms & opportunities that present themselves each day. #AmericaFirst #MAGA #NewMexico

How We Can Live As God’s People in Troubled Times

On this beautiful #ABQ Sunday, I'm thinking about the battles we wage; be it political/policy driven, legal or on the battlefield. But I believe the battle within each of us is truly the most critical of all. During times of great polarization, we must remain faithful & have peace in our hearts, in our actions & in our words. #faith #NewMexico #GodsBlessings

Reflecting upon the current state of social discourse, I have come to believe that the greatest battle of our age is not, as one might suppose, the “war on terror,” meaning terrorists. I believe it is an invisible war inside human souls that carries its own element of terror. This invisible war, as…

Raising #taxes always seems to be the easiest solution but it's not a long-term fix to the fundamental economic problem that faces our state & simply a way to kick the can down the road. We must work to create an environment in which innovation & the entrepreneurial spirit can succeed - raising taxes will further hinder businesses & families across the state. #NewMexico #Business #nmleg #nmpol

Aetna CEO: Obamacare markets are in a 'death spiral'

Access to affordable health care has become far more difficult in recent years as providers continue to pull out of the #ObamaCare exchange. Just last year, Presbyterian pulled out leaving more than 10,000 New Mexicans uninsured. The government can't create solutions by eliminating the competitive marketplace & we're seeing this "death spiral" all over the nation, impacting countless families. #AmericaFirst #AffordableCareAct #ABQ

The ABQjournal nailed it in their editorial about the New Mexico State Land Office's plan to swap what could be described as nearly-useless state land along the border for high-quality grazing land controlled by #BLM. A great example of how our #conservative leaders are looking for real solutions that will improve national security and have a positive impact on #NewMexico! #AmericaFirst

I can't say that I'm surprised by survey results in today's ABQjournal that show 58% of business leaders feel #NewMexico is heading in the wrong direction. It comes down to transparency in Santa Fe & continuing to foster economic development initiatives at the local & state level. When the business community has confidence in the government, meaningful job creation, innovation & economic diversity can thrive. #ABQ #AmericaFirst #Business

This is major news! The tide continues to turn as the U.S. is starting to be seen as a haven for business, innovation & entrepreneurship once again.

The investment would be in a previous plant, Fab 42, that was started and then left vacant.

U.S. job growth accelerates in January, but wages lag

Since the election of President Donald J. Trump, consumer confidence & job growth has steadily risen nationwide. An #AmericaFirst policy isn't empty rhetoric but a promise to ensure the national & economic security of the U.S., including creating an environment in which job-creating businesses & innovation can thrive, and once again, make the American worker a global force. #MakeAmericaGreatAgain #POTUS #Business #ABQ #MAGA

U.S. job growth surged more than expected in January as construction firms and retailers ramped up hiring, which likely gives the Trump administration a head start as it seeks to boost the economy and employment.

Trump Says 'tough phone calls' needed because 'world is in trouble'

We've always been a nation & people of compassion, but we're also a nation of law. We have a responsibility to protect our communities & President Donald J. Trump is taking steps to do just that. Pausing the refugee program until we can institute better policies, proper vetting procedures & get nations around the world to do their part is critical now, more than ever. #AmericaFirst #POTUS #MakingAmericaGreatAgain

U.S. President Donald Trump defended his order to temporarily bar entry to people from seven majority-Muslim nations, which has come under intense criticism at home and abroad, saying on Thursday it was crucial to ensuring religious freedom and tolerance in America.

What you need to know about Colorado judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court

One of the most important & long-lasting decisions any president can make is choosing a nominee to fill a spot on the Supreme Court. President Trump's choice of Colorado Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch is just what this nation needs; a Constitutionally-minded, thoughtful & highly respected jurist who will have a great impact on the Court for generations. #SCOTUS #AmericaFirst #POTUS #MAGA

Colorado will learn Tuesday whether President Donald Trump will pick Judge Neil Gorsuch — a native son and strict Constitutional textualist — for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Obama, in a rare move for an ex-president, breaks silence to criticize Trump on immigration

It took Obama 10 days into his post-presidency before publicly criticizing President Donald J. Trump. President Bush held his tongue for eight long years.The left consistently lectures the American people about decorum & as expected, just more words that don't apply to the progressive elite. We're finally getting to work on the people's business; border security, common sense immigration policies, cutting out of control regulations on business and getting our allies around the world to finally do their part, but the left can't handle real progress. #AmericaFirst #POTUS #MakingAmericaGreatAgain #MAGA

Trump Hardly First President to Pause Refugee Programs

It's apparent that the hysteria & hyperbole on the left & in the mainstream media has conveniently overlooked Obama's '11 suspension of migrants/refugees from Iraq. I can't stress enough that The President's EOs concerning the vetting of refugees is not only in the security interest of our community, but critical in the creation of a viable immigration policy that's been broken for decades. #AmericaFirst #POTUS #Security

Despite the mass hysteria and outrage that President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning U.S. entry to refugees from seven terrorism-compromised countries has garnered, the order is hardly unprecedented. “I hereby find that the unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United St...
