Senator Josh Hawley was Conservative of the Year 2019

Joshua David “Josh” Hawley, born December 31, 1979 (age 43), is the conservative U.S. Senator from Missouri, serving since 2019. He is a Republican and trounced in a landslide pro-abort liberal Democrat Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections. Previously, he served as Missouri Attorney General and also worked for conservative legal organizations such as The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and Alliance Defending Freedom.

Hawley is a leader in defending against attempts by the Left to erode masculinity and manliness. He was also outspoken and unapologetic for defending election integrity against never-ending liberal attempts to undermine it.

As a U.S. Senator, Hawley has taken the lead on requiring judicial nominees who respect the U.S. Constitution and who are not pro-abortion. Sen. Hawley has forcefully promoted strongly conservative positions on multiple issues.[1]

He also defended President Trump during the Democrats' witchhunts against him. Hawley showed his adamant support and understanding of Trump's innocence.[2]

After vowing to object to the "results" of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, Hawley's Washington, D.C. home, where his wife and newborn baby were, was surrounded by a militant mob of far-left activists in early January 2021, some of which tried to pound on the door to further harass and intimidate his family.[3]

Political positions

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation on February 17, 2023 Hawley criticized the Uniparty:

Dozens of lawmakers and so-called experts and talking heads have claimed that an invasion of Taiwan simply will not happen, or that if it does we'll of course prevail. They say that China is afraid to challenge us, or just that they won't. These people prefer to tell a familiar and comforting story, it's become a bit of a bedtime story in the foreign policy community which goes like this: That winning the Cold War allows us to police the world for all time. No problem. They want us to believe our military might is infinite, that American power faces no real constraints, and that we ought to use it to try and reshape the world.

Now they want us to believe we can fight an endless proxy war in Ukraine, and somehow, someway none of this will deter our ability to stop China from invading Taiwan, or deter our ability to stop China elsewhere. Curiously enough, this story of American Empire, and that's really what it is–a story of liberal empire–is not particularly partisan. It's told by neoconservatives on the right and liberal globalists on the left. Together they make up what you might call the Uniparty, the D.C. establishment that transcends all changing administrations.[5]


Hawley has been denounced by many observers, including the ADL,[6] for his tirade against "cosmopolitan" elites,[7] an antisemitic canard infamously used by Communist mass murderer Joseph Stalin. Despite widespread backlash, Hawley dismissed criticisms of his alleged usage of Communist propaganda.
