Joe Kent

Candidate Location

Washington 3rd Congressional District
US Congress


To maintain the cornerstone of our Republic, we must fully adjudicate the Presidential election of 2020. Several courts should have done the adjudication. However, each court that had the chance to strengthen our system neglected its duties. Therefore, Congress must fully adjudicate the election of 2020 in a congressional hearing, subpoena witnesses, and evidence to show the American people exactly what transpired in November of 2020. The trust that we have in our system of government is sacred. We must have complete faith that all legal votes are counted and that states only count legal votes. In November of 2020, the American people’s trust was broken by widespread irregularities, fraud, and the media’s commanding narrative that Joe Biden had won the Presidency and anyone who questioned this narrative would be labeled an insurrectionist, terrorist or be de-platformed.

Presiden Donald Trump's Endorsement of Joe Kent for Congress


We must reopen our economy, bring manufacturing back to the United States and gain energy independence. I will do everything in my power to end the COVID lockdowns on our businesses, schools, and places of worship and ensure that nothing like this occurs again. Congress must prevent federal funding from being used to bail out activist governors like Inslee, who insist on locking down their economies. Federal funds for COVID relief should protect vulnerable populations- such as the elderly- and assist small businesses that have suffered under the lockdowns. Congress must cut off the funding to force the pro-lock down governors to reopen their economies.


Resources in this district provide a thriving timber and fishing industry, but intrusive federal regulations have crippled these job-producing industries. I will work to remove cumbersome rules from these industries responsibly.


We must have strict immigration control and a robust physical border wall to ensure our nation’s security. Illegal immigration affects our economy and the ability of working-class Americans to obtain jobs. For decades establishment Republicans and Democrats have told us that unrestricted immigration is good for our nation and will not affect Americans’ ability to obtain employment. Major corporations, who greatly benefit from cheap labor, push this narrative.  This allows the corporations to circumvent minimum-wage requirements while getting richer; meanwhile, our working-class struggles to find jobs.  

I will introduce and support legislation to build a border wall, push back on blanket amnesty, deprive sanctuary cities of federal funding, and enforce strict employer verification requirements for their employees to end non-US citizen labor demand.


Our nation must retain a modern and highly skilled military, poised to strike and deter our enemies around the world at a moment’s notice. I support modernizing our force to focus on our main threat, China. For the past two decades, we have focused on ground counter-terror and counter-insurgency operations. We must support a decisive pivot to fighting a modern nation in every warfare domain, especially cyber and information warfare.


I fully support the men and women of our law enforcement community. I will fight any efforts to defund the police. I will fight to use the tools of federal law enforcement to dismantle the Antifa terrorist organization.


Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is our number one national security threat and is already at war with us. China is stealing US intellectual property and using slave labor to undercut global manufacturing. We must focus on balancing our budget to strengthen the US dollar, onshore our industries, and forbid US companies from off-shoring their manufacturing. We must build a strong coalition of nations against the CCP’s aggressive practices abroad and their genocide and human rights abuses against their people. I will push to offensively use tariffs against Chinese imports and sanction China for its numerous human rights violations.  I will push our diplomats to make alliances in the Pacific against the CCP.  I strongly support President Trump’s tariffs, barring of Chinese technology, and cracking down on the CCP’s infiltration of US industry, think tanks, and universities.


The social media technocrats are monopolies and must be broken up. The internet and access to social media is a modern public utility. I am a free speech advocate; free speech is a sacred right in this nation that no one can take from us. Our technology and social media companies have crossed the line by depriving people of their ability to express themselves and operate in our society. Social media have repeatedly acted on behalf of the far left and democrats. Look no further than the Hunter Biden laptop / NY Post issue just before the 2020 election as an example of big tech that has gone off the rails.  We need to examine how big tech impedes Americans’ rights and remove big tech’s ability to act like a nation-state.


I am also a 2nd Amendment advocate and do not support any new gun legislation.  I most especially do not support House Resolution 127, the recent partnership/proposals and funding requests advocated by March for Our Lives with the White House, or gun platforms from the Biden Administration. I will push for Constitutional Carry/concealed carry permit reciprocity in all 50 states, so all citizens can exercise their right to bear arms and defend themselves without government interference.
