But the big guest of the evening, who garnered a standing ovation upon entrance, was Missouri US Senator Josh Hawley. Hawley made his local appearance at around 5:45 that evening to make an impassioned 30 minute speech touching on the dangers of Biden’s border, indoctrination found in public schools, and concerns surrounding politicians making large profits in the stock market.

Hawley also used his time to voice his concern regarding Biden’s green agenda. “[Biden] is using your tax dollars to subsidize electric vehicles that are made in China, that you don’t want and I don’t want, so that the Chinese can profit off of it and then sell them back to us. Then he mandates that by 2030…all vehicles in this country have to be electric. Where are [the cars] going to be made? Not here.” Hawley then went on the question how this has become a reality. “Well, [it happened] because the Senate is bought and paid for and Joe Biden is totally enthralled by the radical leftists with their crazy, environmentalist, wacko climate religion agenda. We cannot go on like this.”

Also in attendance that evening were Secretary of State candidates Shane Schoeller, Denny Hoskins, and Valentina Gomez who gained internet fame after posting a video of herself burling LGBTQIA+ friendly children’s books with a flame thrower.
