Our party platform has three key philosophies compared to a traditional campaign agenda. First, we believe that the party system in Washington is broken. Second, we believe in a foundational return to the spiritual heritage of our country. Third, we believe it is time government act selfless and not selfish with the future of this country.
We have great passion to be part of a larger movement under God of real change in this country. Enjoy the site and let’s MOVE! Learn why all individuals who interviewed Todd of the York County GOP leadership committee endorsed Todd Watson for US Senate.
This site is designed to give you the information you need quickly while yet thorough enough to move the dialogue of the debate to “How” from “What”. “Todd’s Stances” has quick positional stances (read the bold if you have no time). Second, we have three Philosophies with quick excerpts to learn more about our beliefs. Finally, we thoroughly blog on any given topic to give those passionate about a subject details they can depend on. The details in these blogs gives you a roadmap to solving problems and details on specific views. You will rarely find disclosure of this level of detail as well as belief structures. Campaigns want to be general to appeal to the most voters. We fundamentally believe in giving specific guidance to move the debate forward and show we are serious about solving problems–not being popular.
Thanks for your support!

Would you the American taxpayer buy ‘8’ F-16’s for Pakistan? Senator Sasse and Fischer thought it was a good idea for you to buy Pakistan EIGHT jets. They defeated Senator Paul’s (R-KY) resolution to stop the purchase (I have attached his speech below #standwithrand)
Pakistan is the government that armed, aided, and abetted the Taliban that has been killing our soldiers. Furthermore, Pakistan, an Islamic country, sheltered Osama Bin Laden one mile away from Pakistan’s military training base for over decade to help Osama avoid capture!!!!
It gets more concerning….
General John F Campbell (Stationed in Afghanistan) testified to Congress that Pakistan’s Haqqani Terrorist Network (mixed into the power of the Pakistan Government) is considered the most capable threat to US forces in Afghanistan. Senator Bob Corker also expressed hesitation on the funds to Secretary of State Kerry for Pakistan due to their “Insufficiency in targeting militant groups hostile to the United States.”
These are legitimate concerns! Yet, the purchase was pushed through and our Senators were part of the vote.
What is this vote really?
Answer: Another chapter in interventionist foreign policy.
Answer: Another episode of making the sale for the large military complex donors of their campaigns.
For the sake of argument, let’s say this purchase is a good idea for National Security…Pakistan already has 70 F-16’s! Why do we need to pay for an additional 8 F-16’s out of our Treasury that has no money???
We are $19 trillion in the hole and we send new money we borrow from the Chinese to a group of people who ACTIVELY PERSECUTE CHRISTIANS TO DEATH!
To make it worse, our actions are severely upsetting the second largest populated country in the world–India. India or Pakistan? Hmmmm.
This follows up the Obama’s Syrian decision I was on the record against and the Republicans (including Fischer) were on the record to support. Syrian policy gave arms to our enemies and recruited less than 100 people to fight for us (that withered down to less than 10). What really happened is the arms we purchased ended up in the hands of the enemy (we repeat this mistake in history over and over). You can read the full Syrian blog on watsonforsenate.com on October 16, 2015 to get the full spectacle of horrendous decision making over Syria by Obama and the approving Republicans.
Most conservatives agree Obama’s foreign policy is bad. However, they continue to support it! I have not!
I’m not sure my fellow Nebraskans know what is going on at the donor level. They are still blinded by speeches. This is another bad decision with heavy donor interest at stake for the GOP (Defense Contractors). At best, this is a poor fiscal decision with beneficial national security implications if we trust the Pakistanis now. At worst, this is a horrendous diplomatic, fiscal, and national security decision that could come back and hurt our allies and worse yet our soldiers. I find it hard to view this as a positive decision—especially considering Pakistan’s recent past.
Keep your eyes open Nebraska. It is all happening right in front of you (especially the secret society establishment meeting last week by Sasse I wrote about in my last blog). The Presidential talk can distract you to shady deals going on. Stay focused to active legislation!
March 11, 2016
If you are a conservative and don’t know Phyllis Schlafly…you are not conservative. Phyllis has a long history of taking on the Establishment. What is her term for Establishment?
Senator Sasse was at the latest meeting of “Kingmakers” despite this continuous “I’m Anti-Establishment” lie to keep up an image in populous conservative circles.
The Bilderbergs and other establishment groups plan much of what happens in the world through coordinated media, diplomatic, and multi-national company efforts. One of the major outcomes of their actions is the undermining of American Sovereignty to advance Globalism (“One World” tendencies). Please watch some YouTube videos on the Bilderberg group. Maybe you will start to understand why Sasse got unlimited coverage and why censorship by the Omaha World Herald against true Constitutional recovery campaigns like mine is very real. As you can see by the gathering of this group, the media (especially larger outlets that the smaller outlets just reprint) and diplomats work together to achieve a common agenda. Our Founding Fathers wanted to see this coordination between press and politicians.
We have a press and country. I’m still fighting for the adjective of “Free”.
Constitutional and Unconstitutional Positions
Many in my circles love Senator Sasse and his rising fame. Many people like his romantic Constitutional speeches (he is smooth). However, most are uneducated to the Constitution and actual actions that were taken by our Founding Fathers. They lack an understanding of the laws he advocates for that are NOT Constitutional (FAST Track/TPP) or against Founding Father Constitutional Philosophy; Interventionism and Free Trade. Until you know the original document and actions you cannot identify Constitutional fallacies of candidates that blend Original Constitutional thought (good) with Modern Interpretive Constitutional Philosophy (rarely Constitutional and bad).
Many citizens will ignore or remain ignorant of these issues because people like to follow “Popular Winners” or have made dangerous assumptions (like Free Trade is Constitutional). I call them Constitutional golfers. They pick up 10 foot putts and call them good. They have to go the extra mile and understand what the Founders actually did. (Hint: they had tariffs)
There is nothing wrong with winning, being popular or successful. However, you can’t forget who you serve and you cannot fail to defend 100% of the Constitution as the oath of office calls for. The later often conflicts with the former. That is the case with the trade treaties. It is the American problem. Our population is so addicted to money that they will sacrifice a document that protects them for the long term for short term economic (or political) gain. It is sad. Low cost consumer products does not always equate to Constitutional advancement. We have a document defined for the benefit of select lands and people.
Make no mistake, Sasse serving these groups who operate by secretive meeting will not serve we the people. I will ask the follow up question no one else will. Does anyone want to ask why he is meeting the CEO of Apple who is openly leading the fight against a judicial order on “Other Business”? That is probably the most bothersome piece to many conservatives that study the connections of who is there if you read the full story. I’m not even going to go there in this piece.
Sasse was tapped as a future leader by these select groups (I’d bet big on it). His historical lineage from the key Ivy league memberships to the Presidential appointment tells an astute historical observer of government a trajectory trend a given person is on based on the historical establishment tree. The history of others on that family tree is what makes this scary for the people. We need George Washington to cut that tree down. The Bush legacy was one root that we successfully removed this year. The Clintons are next.
You will continue to see coverage of his “Good” things and little to no coverage of votes like TPP/Fast Track that does not match his public image he has created (“Their” money interest vs. “Constitutional Interest”). It is the big legislation that TPP/Fast Track achieves for the ruling elites that has to be voted FOR that may go against the rhetoric that was preached and soothed the masses. That is how the game is played in Big Stakes Washington. Many of us are trying to change the game and get this government back to the people where violating the Constitution isn’t up for debate and democracy and dialogue can settle the differences inside the lines. You have to listen to genuineness and run from scripted speeches.
The Establishment Cringing and Their Future Plans
I’m sure the establishment is cringing that this secret meeting was discovered and published by REAL journalists. These are the patriot journalists that are so hard to find these days (look at Ben Swann as another ‘pen patriot’). They dig for truth.
I think Senator Sasse will be running for President the next 4 to 12 years based on his inclusion in this group. My guess would be sooner rather than later when you see a man with a poor track record like Rubio flash on the scene and become a rising Presidential candidate with no substantive legislative accomplishments, broken political promises, and a poor attendance record. Sasse can run a mile around Rubio’s record in a year if he wanted or is allowed to. However, credit Rubio. He said he was wrong this week in his conduct. Rarely will you see an establishment member apologize. I commend him for that. That is character. Trump could learn from this.
All is not bad with Sasse or Rubio. We are united in a fight against poor Iranian diplomatic efforts, united in advancing religious liberty, promote pro-life, “Speak to” less government regulation (I’d act), and many more common conservative goals.
Constitutional Courage Needed
However, there is a HUGE difference in true Constitutional courage between us. I do not support these trade treaties or Fast Track (similar to the newly awakened Cruz on the issue). I was one of the first conservatives to go on the record on this in 2014 and will not back down like Trump. There is no Constitutional defense to this treaty. Like the Iran Deal it was cut behind closed doors by an out of control President and usurps the authority of the people and their sovereignty maintained by Congressional review.
Outside of TPP/Fast Track there are few MAJOR pieces of legislation he has been a part of to develop a record either way. The lack of a border security bill to come out of his committee should be an alarm bell for any normal conservative who thought he would be a leader on uniting the party and securing the border. A person who cannot bring consensus IN HIS OWN PARTY on a border bill is problematic (those big corporate donors looking for cheap labor makes that bill hard to produce).
I will present to you in the near future two VERY IMPORTANT additional Constitutional topics we are different on: Interventionism and Free Trade (upcoming videos). Our Constitutional guidance and founding fathers demonstrated a different approach to interventionism and free trade then establishment politicians of both parties. Interventionism and Free Trade are the largest differences between conservative non-Republicans and conservative Republicans. Foreign policy took a dangerous Constitutional shift from Washington/Adams to Roosevelt/Wilson. Trade was historically tariff based until Republicans switched tunes in the early 1930’s. The early 1900’s was horrendous for the Constitution and the beginning of our Constitutional downfall.
As far as Establishment aspirations for President, Hillary winning or losing will have a big impact on the vitality of a third option that is being floated by the Kingmakers. I think a third option will be guaranteed if both Trump and Sanders win as the current voices of power will have no controlled horse in the race. I suspect a strong push for Hillary if she wins her primary by the powers at be.
Hillary has long been an interventionist and free trader for the benefit of multi-national companies. This is why you can hear some crazed Republicans actually supporting Hillary over Trump (loyalty to “The Club”). These are the mutual values that current leaders of both parties usually have.
How to Approach Candidates
I look at the governmental actions (if they exist), political money, and political speeches of our officials in that order. The population tends to work in reverse. They listen to the speeches of candidates through controlled media. They rarely know the political money behind the voice and cannot recall any noteworthy legislative actions. My job is to help you change. We need to be a smarter electorate to the money and substantive actions. Remember when your coach told you to watch the torso and pay no attention to the head fakes (if you played basketball)? It is similar in politics. Watch the actions and avoid the high profile speeches to understand where they are really going.
Tip 1: Read The Hill, Washington Examiner or Politico. These outlets keep you informed (not always free of bias). Avoid the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal with outright political agendas
Tip 2: Got to Opensecrets.com and ‘vet’ your candidates money
Tip 3: Look at the donor lists and see what social causes they support. Planned Parenthood support will tell you a lot about donors and controlling conservative candidates
The basic rule of the Establishment is this: You are allowed to preach whatever it takes to get elected but votes on key legislation they need will match their will (you can have a few non dissents if there is margin in the vote to keep your base). If you want to have access to the money/media/corporate machine that really controls power, these appears to be the rules based on the extensive reading I have done.
They allow significant fighting on issues that don’t affect the money. Your candidate may talk pro-life until they are blue…just ask if they help on legislation for their donor list who already directly pays Planned Parenthood (Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Goldman Sachs). You either compromise your conscious and make a deal or you have to make it big on your own and fund your own way to make real change.
‘This’ is where we say the actions are controlled. One major reason I had to leave the GOP and be Independent were around principles of Constitutional Non-Free International Trade, Constitutional Non-Interventionism, Unconstitutional Currency Control, and Disagreement with Donors and their agenda. Fighting for True Liberty for We the People is liberating and frustrating at the same time.
The Quiet(er) Revolution You Are Witnessing
We are in a battle to save capitalism and American sovereignty as we speak. Rigged and Controlled capitalism is a big ingredient to creating a push for socialism. Globalist pursuits are destroying our self-will for our population. We need strong DOMESTIC centered capitalism to benefit We the People that is not controlled thru currency domination, government regulation, and fighting for those on top of the pyramid around the world. International trade can still flourish. Tariffs can be low. However, our policy should be based on a strong employment and wage rates created by markets and not the DJIA level. Working for the establishment is a vote for a centrally controlled and organized society that can’t jeopardize the position of the powerful. This is not American liberty. Where the revolution gets divided is many of us are pulling for the original Constitution and actions in their entirety. The other part of the revolution is looking for socialism. This is why it is imperative for Establishment followers to insist on a clean-up of our system and throwing those out of power tied to the corrupted system. There is no faith in the compromised (Why I took ZERO corporate money) to move this country forward for the Constitution.
(See my past posts if you have not figured out the corruption. It is in the design our monetary and tax policy)
Furthermore, our national debt is at a crisis level (I’m afraid we may have already gone too far). We cannot afford an interventionist foreign policy that leads to wars that advances very little of our Constitutional mission and jeopardizes our Republic by adding to already unsustainable debt levels. Long drawn out periods of war have been the downfall of great civilizations since the beginning of time. We need to study history and control our aggression.
We have seen most anyone and everyone in the Nebraska GOP party leadership get behind Rubio. He is the Establishment choice after Jeb was taken out early by true “Anti-Establishment” voices. The money quickly moved to Rubio and we responded. The movement succeeded. Rubio has gone nowhere despite all the endorsements, the politician stump speeches, the ads, and the media singing his praises. The movement is strong.
Those of us who do not add to the “Globalist and Establishment” base of the NEGOP base are shunned away from political advancement in this state. The best way to get on stage and speak these ideas was Independent and not GOP. That is what I did. That is why the stage was held hostage by the media and Senator Sasse in the general. (I assumed you noticed little to no difference on platforms between the GOP candidates in the primary?)
My proudest achievement in ’14 was to be called the clear Constitutional candidate after our only televised debate (that most of you have not seen) and then watch the deemed ‘Constitutional Senator’ duck the next 10 debates because he was out debated.
My satisfaction came from delivering the speeches I assured my volunteers I would give in the name of Constitutional conservatism and giving ALL Nebraskans my respect and my ear. We can do better!
What the Nebraska GOP Needs to Realize
Unfortunately, Republican Nebraska remains behind the dramatically changing national conservative scene. However, I am seeing progress. I love getting the emails that say, “I see it now!”. Those make my day. The numbers of people Constitutionally “Getting it” are growing! (write me at todd@watsonforsenate with your story)
For the majority of NEGOP loyalists, they have not seen the agenda of the money behind Rubio as the rest of the country has. Most were wowed with a great speech. The majority of the country (including Florida) has moved past his speeches and looked at his track record and monetary donations. This is what Nebraska should be doing. I hope to continue to evolve my state in understanding the world agenda of many of their donors and why Constitutional recovery will only occur when these donors lose power and don’t select/control the appointed voices to run the country for their benefit.
It is key I continue to educate people on the Establishment and their followers who have developed deep globalist/interventionist beliefs. These beliefs are based on decades of action and teachings that have been funded and pushed by Kingmakers through education and propaganda (often the same). Study the founding fathers and you will change your deep held beliefs. You have to trust the thinking of our Founders over civil beliefs you have been ingrained with.
These incorrect belief systems shrink the liberty of all Americans. Worse yet, they cost American lives in our military without advancing Constitutional Security or American Liberty. Blood will always have to be spilled to protect freedom. We are all grateful that some are called to take that risk for us. However, they should only be called upon when the threat to our Constitutional mission is in jeopardy. (Hint: It is not in Jeopardy Defending International Oil Interests). I must use my gifts and fight for them first. The Kingmakers have altered foreign policy that has cost American lives. Ideas have consequences. Monetary control remaining in Wall Street, intervention in International sovereignty, and failing to protect markets for the benefit our people, and working for donors who simultaneously fund abortion has severe consequences. Ideas and alliances matter.
In a world of “Identity Politics” the GOP will continue to spin what establishment is and what it isn’t. Don’t take the bait of definition change offered by both sides. The money, connections, and background makes this an easy analysis. Results will stay the same with continued obedience to the controlled media and money. If you still don’t want to listen to me…that is fine. However, listen to Phyllis. She is a long time veteran in following the money and seeing 50 years of conservative destruction by the Kingmakers.
Prayer FOR Our Leaders is Still a Command
Please share this post. Keep praying for Senator Sasse and all our government leaders. I’ve sought out Senator Sasse in person but he has declined my invitation to talk. I will keep trying.
At the end of the day, we need God’s help to continue to take this country back for how our founders designed it to work best.
I have ramped up my daily tweets @watsonforsenate. Please follow.
Get Educated. Grow In Courage. Keep Looking Up for Answers.

Planned Parenthood defunding stopped, Obamacare removal failed, but corporate handouts succeeded! This is GOP leadership today. I do want to commend our delegates breaking ranks today. They showed me something good in not being obedient to National leadership. The National GOP leaders continued to show me why they are not worth pledging loyalty to. Senator Cruz correctly identifies that the ‘D’ and ‘R’ leaders are a team. This is often true – the funding sources are the same and control the leadership on both sides!

A post on my fine visit to Kentucky last week…..
I was fortunate to be welcomed to Louisville last Tuesday. (I attached the picture of my beautiful wife and average ‘me’ in downtown Louisville)
I wanted to recognize the warm welcome by the beautiful people of Kentucky. Furthermore, I want to personally thank David Patterson, the Libertarian candidate from Kentucky (lost to Senator McConnell) for offering up a fine place to stay with one of his supporters in Louisville. That is genuine southern hospitality! The warm hospitality was appreciated and you can expect the same reception if you visit Nebraska.
Moving on….Kentucky reminds you it is full of “Unbridled Spirit” at the border. Unfortunately, they have a Senator “Bridled” to K-Street and Wall Street interests. He has lost sight of Promoting the General Welfare of the American people. He has focused much of his work on providing the corporate welfare that is not aligned with our Constitution.
Unfortunately, Nebraskans are not without blame. They elect candidates loyal to K-Street. They love the political propaganda ads K-Street pays for with candidates that come from establishment roots.
Even the largest grassroots organizations like “For America” don’t get it. They are accurately frustrated with Senator McConnell. However, they support and fund candidates in our state who have gone on national TV and pledged to be a “Team Player” with Senator McConnell. Why would you support someone pledging to work with a leader you are frustrated with “For America”?
As most of you know I’m an advocate against the Fed that was created in 1913. I believe money belongs to the American people and not Wall Street. However, do you know what other poor institution was created in 1913? The Majority Leader of the Senate! Is it any coincidence we have a Majority Leader promoting the best interest of Wall Street over Main Street?
Grassroots and K-Street can win a $5 million race in Nebraska. However, did you ever ask why K-Street and Wall Street interests will spend upwards of $80 million on a Kentucky race? Simple. Power.
A Majority Leader calls the shots of what legislation, amendments, and resolutions will be allowed to be presented on the floor (Watch Senator Cruz rightfully call out Senator McConnell) to have a chance to become law. A nice grass roots candidate may have good thoughts. Unfortunately, their ideas will not see the floor with a “Majority Leader”. A majority leader controls what is presented. This is why affiliation over view is a superior consideration. This is why the people should be turning away from establishment loyal candidates.
The position of Majority Leader in the Senate is not in the spirit of the Constitution. However, it did answer a need for organization of government work. If I were calling the shots, I’d make a 7 person panel with members to determine what legislation will be introduced to maintain organization but dilute concentration of power. No one person in a large elected body should have that much power over a national agenda.
I appreciated the time in Kentucky. The renovated Embassy Suites was amazing–check it out (It puts the Nashville Embassy to shame). Louisville’s downtown has come a long way. I hope Kentucky politics goes farther then their upgraded downtown. They need to “Sting Like a Bee” against some of their politicians and have courage to elect mental heavyweights like David Patterson.
We need those knowledgeable in the Constitution. Better yet, we need people loyal and considerate to the people. Main stream donor base politicians have been failing America for decades. A police officer walking the walk understands the needs of the people and should be of high consideration.
Thank You Kentucky for your warm welcome and hospitality. You have more than a sizable impact on the direction of our country. I implore you to demand Senator McConnell to Promote the General Welfare of the American people as called for by the Constitution. Provide the Corporate Welfare was never called for by our founders.
We need leadership to create a liberty oriented and fair playing field. We have a crisis with both our President and the Majority Leader. I hope you the people of Kentucky can make the difference and put some pressure on your Senior Senator to change their approach!
